lyrics

When did we get so many paces ahead of our old selves?
Fashions changed, furniture rearranged, we're strangers in the photo frames lining the shelves.

If you stay, babe, I'll put the kettle on
Curl up with a cup of halcyon
I savor time these sacred days
I'm not just giving this shit away

We can seize the sun
The day is ours to run
If we don't die young

Your reflection hasn't changed to show your age; every season you stay evergreen
While time has flown and shown the worst of me- it's my curse to feel everything

I hear the hush of a settled score
Feel the gust of the shutting door

We can seize the sun
The day is ours to run
If we don't die young

Don't glance behind you- time is on your heels
You'll forget the details but not how you feel

We can seize the sun
The day is ours to run
If we don't die young

When did we get so many paces ahead of our old selves?
