Swing
Your arms into a ghost
That made us dead-alive
And I’d turn my heels and run
But they already ran away

“I know you saw a smile
But you’ve been on the bench
By now the cover’s blown
And everyone is far away...”

Somewhere on the line
I could have had the time
To be happier with you
What else could I do?

In the backseat
With no sun

I know we had awhile
And that was all I had
I drove all over town
But now the ghost wont go away

You sink into the sun
You left me by my plans
And you tell everyone,
“Now that he is far away...”

Dear I’m all alone
With my mind and what we’ve done
I was happier with you
What else could I do?

In the backseat
With no sun

Now my love is spent
You were my best friend
It started in the car
And ended with my heart

    Swing
    Your arms into a ghost
    That made us dead-alive
    And I’d turn my heels and run
    But they already ran away

    “I know you saw a smile
    But you’ve been on the bench
    By now the cover’s blown
    And everyone is far away...”

    Somewhere on the line
    I could have had the time
    To be happier with you
    What else could I do?

    In the backseat
    With no sun

    I know we had awhile
    And that was all I had
    I drove all over town
    But now the ghost wont go away

    You sink into the sun
    You left me by my plans
    And you tell everyone,
    “Now that he is far away...”

    Dear I’m all alone
    With my mind and what we’ve done
    I was happier with you
    What else could I do?

    In the backseat
    With no sun

    Now my love is spent
    You were my best friend
    It started in the car
    And ended with my heart

    General CommentThis song feels like it's about 3 different relationships at once. I like listening to it and reflecting on every romantic endeavor I've ever had
