Take me somewhere the summer never ends
We count the seasons by the corners of your bed
Today the dog sleeps in and we dress ourselves in blankets once again
Cause there's a list of plans that I've been meaning to make
But every day is just a promise that I'll break
So fold your maps until the miles can't take me away again
Me away again

Come close
Come close
I paid my debt to distance and earned my share of home
Sing slow
Sing slow
So if I'm gone before the morning's set aglow
You're not alone

And I know every minute feels like it's a week
So hang your picture frames along the walls so you can't see
The glossy paper memories of nights you didn't have to wait on me
And that's how we'll stay

Come close
Come close
I paid my debt to distance and earned my share of home
Sing slow
Sing slow
So if I'm gone before the morning's set aglow

You're a home that I saw through the words from the side of the highway
And the dim glow of your light through the trees
Still make it harder and harder to leave
Take me somewhere the summer never ends
We count the seasons by the corners of your bed
And you fold your maps until the miles can take me away again
Me away again

Come close
Come close
I paid my debt to distance and earned my share of home
Sing slow
Sing slow
So if I'm gone before the morning's set aglow

Come close
Come close
I paid my debt to distance and earned my share of home
Sing slow
Oh darling, sing slow
Cause I'll be gone before the morning's set aglow
