Funny how such a short time seems like forever-
seems like such a short time..
don't blink
you might not see again.
Don't open your mouth too wide
it might just freeze like that.

So afraid to miss you,
to miss out..
I'll outlive you anyway..
all the churches we all but tore down.
I caught your eyes
Like a fever or a mid-summer cold front.
When this ship goes down,
I'll hit the ground running.
You can count my age by the rings I used to wear on my fingers.

Here I am,
on my back again,
you can't fuck me back again.

Make your way home,
trip on covers
make you way home silent( hand to mouth).
Something tells me when we both sink,
you'll look good in white
you'll make yours.

    General Commentthis song is so god damn amazing... it's awesome how he says "funny how such a short time seems like forever, seems like such a short time" at the beginning.i'm guessing this song has to do with the passing of time and how you can't go back and change it and how we'll all eventually die.

    General Commenthmmm... duplicate post? weird. i must have hit the back button at some point. i wanted to point out that the "I'll outlive you anyway" lyric sounds to me "You'll outlive me anyway"

    *shrug*

    General Commenti think you're right. if you listen to the demo it's clearly "you'll outlive me anyway" so they probably kept it on the record
