Too soon you say
The ice has watered down my drink
And your kitchen clock is covered with my bedtime

Too soon you say
I can almost hear my car pulling away
This is shaping up to be the same old thing

Let me tell you why it is that your eyes remind me of Alpha Centauri
Fading like an old song
Or something so unattached it could never belong
Too much you've said

Let me show you what it is
It's a sweet confession
A wasted intention
Content in waiting so long
For something so something so

Let go of all these things that your founding fathers bring
Could you really do without all that you seem to want to need
Don't protect me
You're no threat to me now
Just smile and tell me all about your brand new memory

Blue stem grows high
Around the beaten path between your aunt's house and my backyard lights
So familiar


Let me tell you why it is that your eyes remind me of Alpha Centauri
Fading like an old song
Or something so something so

Let go of all these things that your founding fathers bring
Could you really do without all that you seem to want to need
Don't protect me
You're no threat to me now
Just smile and tell me all about your brand new memory

Too much you've said
