i dream a little bit
about the chance of seeing you
and outside stays true
and outside through the windowpane
and the hole in my brain

i'm getting getting getting hold of myself
i'm getting getting getting hold of myself
i'm getting getting getting hold of myself
i'm getting getting getting hold of myself
i'm getting getting getting hold of myself

and honey, it's stunning
at such a peculiar pace
i see the wrinkles in your face
start to deepen and form

and outside through the windowpane
and the hole in my brain

i'm getting getting getting hold of myself
i'm getting getting getting hold of myself
i'm getting getting getting hold of myself
i'm getting getting getting hold of myself
i'm getting getting getting hold of myself

and i said we'll run until the sun burns out
and i want to know
who wants to run until the sun burns out?
and we want to we want to
and i said we'll run until the sun burns out
and we want to know
who wants to run until the sun burns out?
and we want to we'd want to

and honey, it's fitting
at such an unusual time
i see the freckles and the lines
start to darken and sink

and i said we'll run until the sun burns out
and i'd like to know
who wants to run until the sun burns out?
and we'd like to we'd like to
and i said we'll run until the sun burns out
and we'd like to no
who wants to run until the sun burns out?
and we'd like to we'd like to

    General Commenti have a feeling this about the distance between dan and madi.
    (;
    really.
    like, one person is missing this other person.
    they like having dreams because they dream about that special person.
    but when they do dream of that person,
    time is going on in the real world and they're getting older.

    "i see the wrinkles in your face
    start to deepen and form"

    meaning, time is going and they don't think they'll see each other anymore.

    i think.
    i love this song. dan sings it wonderfully.

    General Commentwith the title in mind as well, "wrinkles in your face" brought to my mind dan's past drug use and seeing his peers sink deeper into theirs, with "getting hold of myself" referring to rehab and moving on from that lifestyle.

    considering only the lyrics and no other personal information, there is a possibility this song refers to madi in a way, but in my opinion drug use is the main theme.

    note the first line of the song comes from that of his earlier song, "same outfit."

    all-in-all a simple but enjoyable preview track.

    General Commentthats the not the name of the song!

    and i think its about his mom. after his dad died they were all depressed and mourning and the "wrinkles in your face" represents that she's getting older with all the sadness!

    General CommentTo me this song is about life after his father died.

    "and outside through the windowpane"

    This reminds me of without gravity when he is looking through the window waiting for his father to come home.

    "i'm getting getting getting hold of myself"
    He's finding ways to deal with it the right way instead of drug use.


    "who wants to run until the sun burns out?"
    He's looking for someone that wants to stay with him forever.

    I think the wrinkles bit is about how his mother looks a lot older because she's mourning. Anyway thats just my interpretation.

    General Commentrobot child i noticed that too! When I first listened to it I was like, "Waittt isn't that from Same Outfit?"

    "i see the wrinkles in your face
    start to deepen and form"

    The wrinkles remind me of frown lines, so possibly this is about a bad time in their relationship. Or it could represent distance between them, the space between them becoming bigger.

    General CommentOH and isn't this line from Bound to Get Caught?
    "i'm getting getting getting hold of myself"

    Dan really incorporates lines from previous songs. He should just make a cd of his unreleased songs instead of picking them apart.
