lyrics

A growth spurt in getting mature
I want these days to expand like they used to
The weather was HOTTER then, and I wore that suit
I took it off when we got introduced
No-Man's-Land conversations, they weren't a thing
Stockpiling/bridging ways to see you
In that summer light, the Light in Your Name
We went out for days and went out and went out again

I just wanted you y'see, latest catastrophe or what?!
Would you stay?
Never in photographs, committed to lay on grass
I made a pact with my former self
That L is for leaving and N is for not coming back

I'm dancing and I hate to dance
My brain feels on fire and my suits on too tight
I wasn't clear with you, and I felt you leave
A moment of silence and quiet bereave
Oh I'm MILES away
And I'm just the same
All held up and screwed up and badly erased
But doing OK, doing alright

I just wanted you y'see, latest catastrophe or what?!
Would you stay?
Never in photographs, committed to lay on grass
I made a pact with my former self
That L is for leaving and N is for not coming back

You're not coming back.
