I don't have forever, but I'll live like I do
Feels like endless summer with the light shining through
All I have is borrowed, my skin and my bones
All I have is borrowed, but I wear these summer clothes

Every thing is just fine
Every thing is just fine
So long as I'm by your side
It's perfect in my mind

I don't have a reason, but I live like I do
The sky could crash into the ground, and we like the view
The flood runs through the canyons in New York City
I know when the hurricane comes, it's comin' for me

Every thing is just fine
Every thing is just fine
So long as I'm by your side
It's perfect in my mind

No one needs to save me
I'm already saved
No one needs to save me
I'm already saved

Every thing is just fine
Every thing is just fine
So long as I'm by your side
It's perfect in my mind
It's perfect in my mind
It's perfect in my mind

    General Comment:I'm in love with this song. Greta is pretty notorious for writing these really sad songs for THS, so this is a really cool change of pace. Excited for her album tonight!

    My Interpretation:This pretty straight forward as far as the meaning goes. Its about being perfectly relaxed and content in this crazy/chaotic world because she has this amazing lover to lean on.

    This is such a lovely song. This band is amazing live. Love love love them. BUY THAT MUSIC.
