we belong on rooftops
watching sunsets
kissing face
turning hours into lovers
that we casually misplace
we should live like children
without children of our own
not responsible for anyone
so leave this kid alone
we belong on islands
watching sunrise
giving space
turning lovers into hours
that we easily erase
we should live like they lived
fill the bathtub up with sand
then we could crank the heat up
and just pretend
but it's not like me to make the effort
all in time my friends
or it depends
who makes an offer
all in times my friends
or it depends
make me an offer

    General Commentthis song is absolutely stunning.
    i like to think of it as a rejection of obligation, just wanting to be young and free for as long as possible without commitments, families, and jobs to tie you down. but at the same time, not doing it for whatever reason. whether it's laziness or responsibility or lack of courage, not being able to live that dream.
