Appears On

Lyrics

[Verse 1]

There was so much we felt we discovered

Breathing  heavy with your face against my shirt

You  were the one who said I love you first

Isn't it funny how the feeling starts to fade

You’re realizing as you're motoring

Waving  to me from your friend's Cabriolet

With Sister  Christian on, ironically


[Chorus]

Come and see me tonight

Come  and see me tonight

Come on, Anais

Come and see me tonight

Come on see me tonight

(Come on, Anais)


[Verse 2]

I  don’t blame you for abandoning your home

They say you gotta try everything at least once

Then you'll understand

Hell yeah you'll really know

I wrote a million words with nothing great to say

I Hope that repetition could elevate me

Someday you'd read me on an airline magazine

Something you might mistake as fate calling

Come and see me tonight

Come and see me tonight

Come on, Anais

Come and see me tonight

Come on see me tonight

(Come on, Anais)

Come and see me tonight

Come and see me tonight

Come on, Anais

Come and see me tonight

Come and see me tonight

Come on, Anais


[Instrumental Bridge]

[Verse 3]

Someone told me once I'm better off, instead

Another said that I'd do good to just forget

But neither of them ever met you at your best

Come and see me and we'll both find out what happens

Come and see me and we'll brush up on bad habits


[Chorus]

Come and see me tonight

Come and see me tonight

Come on, Anais

Come and see me tonight

Come on see me tonight

(Come on, Anais)


Come and see me tonight

Come and see me tonight

Come on, Anais

Come and see me tonight

Come and see me tonight

Come on, Anais


(Come on, Anais)

(Come on, Anais)

Come on, Anais

Come on, Anais

Other Versions

Demo Version

The Demo version is considered as slower at 84 BPM, however this may be an errant measure of the BPM. [3] The demo can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQDJjSiNT74 or https://soundcloud.com/jimmyeatworld/anais-demo-version?si=1ed6995338234c758bbb2b6e768de313&utm_source=clipboard&utm_medium=text&utm_campaign=social_sharing and is slightly shorter at 3:19. It also lacks the backing vocals singing "(Come on, Anais)" in the Chorus and the fade out Guitar bridge is shorter and doesn't have '(Come on, Anais)" sung as a backing vocal over it.

Studio Version

The studio version has a slightly more produced feel with similar guitar work to Cautioners or Get It Faster opening (the first few seconds may be a sample from Cautioners directly) It can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giJrRLCIy8A. It is otherwise very similar to the non-demo version.
