lyrics

It's 59 degrees
and the cracks on these streets won't' help me
staying calm in the backseat
while I'm thinking about how we got here
and how this hole became so cold
it took me years to gain some clarity
but now I'm scared, I've got no plans…

I guess I'll just put off again…cause that's what I always do.

Life has just washed us away
by the time we leave
this place will fall apart
As if there was another way
did this town grow up, or did I?
I honestly don't know…
I'm not sure if I'm done yet
I'm not ready to say goodbye
all I know is that I'd be missing the summer nights here.

I've been hanging yellow notes around my room
hoping that they will turn into something I would be proud of
they say I should live in the "now" but hey, I always feel I'm one second behind my own life, never fully present.

Life has just washed us away
by the time we leave
this place will fall apart
As if there was another way
did this town grow up, or did I?
I honestly don't know…
I'm not sure if I'm done yet
I'm not ready to say goodbye
all I know is that I'd be missing the summer nights here

and through half closed eyes we'll realize we don't need big plans
as long as we'll keep these memories safe
like playing flip cup with Ben, Jen and Katie
or the tequila nights at LEX (hard laughs due to this drunk honesty)
And when shit gets bad
we'll give "The Upsides" another spin
and even though we hardly get along
we'll keep looking for reasons to call this place home.

(Things will never be the same. I'll come back to catch my breath. I kept my distance but I've never felt this close)
