"Treading Water" as written by and Georgia Mia Hubley....
Movies like zoos
Try another me and I will try another you
Or put my arms around you like I think you want me to
But tell me what you’re thinking I so often misconstrue

Treading water
Treading white wine
Seeing borders
Seeing straight lines
I get these feelings that I don’t
Have much time

Always rushing always late (x2)
Always late

Movies like Zoos
I talk to missionaries when they’re
standing at my door
They tell me what i should be reading
I still can’t see what for
We both stand there politely trying
to change each other’s core

When other angels
float by
they seem likely to fall
from the sky
What I want is difficult
I must try
I see traces when you walk
And other voices when you talk
When you talk


When other angels
float by
they seem likely to fall
from the sky
What I want is difficult
I must try
I see traces when you walk

Treading water
Treading white wine
Seeing borders
Seeing straight lines
I get these feelings that I don't
have much time
Always rushing, always late (x2)
always late (x2)

I'm always rushing
I'm always late
always late (x3)
I'm always rushing (x2)
always late

    General CommentI love the "we both stand there politely trying to change each other’s core" line. The missionary is trying to get him to believe in something he can't, and he's trying to get the missionary to stop believing in something he does, and it's so relatable to everyday life; people are always trying to change other people into something more like theirselves, maybe so they won't feel so alone, but they can't.
