Rainy days, it’s the end of summer
I'm locking myself inside of my room
I pressed my eye to that telescope
I thought what I saw was you
But you were just steam coming off of the road
The same stretch that runs right by home
It will take you to my front door
And you’ll say:
"Hey babe, are you ready for the world?

We won’t look back

So we walked until our feet were bloody
And we spoke until our ears grew warm
You felt in your heart a certain safety
With all your goodbyes, you were finally adored
But I was just steam coming off of the road
The same stretch that plowed right through your home
I pinned a note to your front door
It read:
"Hey babe, are you ready ready for the war?"

I killed my rage and I turned around
I saw you sitting inside of my house
With my books and your tears and your glowing hope
Looking at me through that old telescope
Because we’re just a dream
Pumping through broken hearts
We’re ripped at the seams and were covered in scars
But we will follow that map just like we planned
and we will put down that “x” wherever you and I land

    General CommentI think this song is about how him and his girlfriend are taking a new page, and moving on forgetting anything that has happened before, like starting a new. Has a really upbeat tune to it, and has become my one of my very favorite HSH songs.

    General Commentoh oh, and i love this song and it's simplicity.
    I think it's about a summer love that ended and he's still searching for it or something.
    I'm not quite sure!

    General CommentActually. This is a Her Space Holiday song, originally.
    It has been re-recorded as an xoxo, panda song.
    Personally, I think I like the original recording.
    It's more atmospheric as opposed to rhythmic&catchy.
    But you can say the same for just about all hsh holiday songs as opposed to xoxo, panda.
