Today's paper can burn in the fire
The headline should've stayed
Only while we know, the ink will never be dry

And applications and resumes pile
The deadlines they can wait for a while
We took the telephone off the hook

Your bedsheets, they tangle like vines
and we wake and your feet touch mine, i shake
Only cause they're ice cold

The avid summers where we swim all night
and sleep through the days
What a perfect way to spend our time
Every watch has got a dead battery
Yeah i know, i know, it could be over soon
So let's make the best of this humid June

The record's spinning an old soul band
We dance and twirl and kiss 'til we can't stand up
Until i, until i step on your feet

Your guts bloom from a canvas in the hall
Half-finished paintings can wait on the wall, until
Until it's time to repaint them

Even if all the birds start a song
Upstairs we're sleeping at six in the morning
You know we'll be humming along

The avid summers where we swim all night
and sleep through the days
Oh what a perfect way to waste our time
Every clock has lost its chime and pace
Cause every tourist wants a souvenir,
just to say "baby, we were here"
And all i want when you and i part ways
is to know we never had any fears

I can see it in your eyes
That you're scared out of your mind
Listen to me when i say that your future-sick(?)
I know what you don't wanna hear
Like a pistol shot ringing for years
Listen to me when i say that you're future-sick(?)

If the world's a (?) of lies
Let the burden be mine, all mine
Until you know it's time to rethink things
