lyrics

I said “no matter the time, no matter the place,
The fortunes will give you the bed that we make.”
I’ve traveled the world for diamonds and drinks,
But he traveled through time to give me this ring.
They say that these choices they don’t grow on trees,
But I beg to differ
I change with ease.
I saw him last month at a motel with lights
We spent the whole evening escaping the night.

I’ve been wondering why you think you’ve got it so bad
When you can’t give to yourself those things you already have
I’ve been wondering why you think you’ve got it so bad
When everything you want you already have

There’s twice on the way to the person you’ve been
When you’ll pass an old place, and they wont let you in.

You will knock, you will plea, you will offer them gold
But the young can’t go back to a home that is old.
The memories weathered the climate has changed
Names and the faces are all rearranged.
He was worried of running but scared to stay still
The wheel of fortune don’t spin at your will

I’ve been wondering why you think you’ve got it so bad
When you can’t give to yourself those things you already have
I’ve been wondering why you think you’ve got it so bad
When everything you want you already have

I said, “I’ll sleep on my stomach,
You sleep on your side,
We’ll know when they’re coming,
We’ll know when to hide.”
He is the only one to undo what’s been done
Who can stop and start time, who can outrun the sun
I taught him to listen
He taught me to breathe
I laid out the cards on the bed by his feet.

The six of the swords and the tower lay flat
They told him to leave and to never look back.
