I've been killing time
With my paperbacks and my box of wine
I've been killing time

'Cause our hearts are too big
Our hearts are too big
To try and fit it in my head
Our hearts are too big

Well I forget the dates and facts
But I remember Nashville til I die
Well i could forget the pattern of your dress
I haven't yet but I might

The world spins without our permisison
We can hold our breath and keep on wishin
Or we can take it for a ride

Yeah it's alright
You know it's alright
You kiss my lips and you changed your mind
But it's alright

'Cause the sun is high
Oh the sun is high
And the sky is blue and the world is white
And the sun is high

I've only known two teachers in my life
One is summer and one is fall
All these statues in my mind
They cannot stand against that drunken cannonball

But the world spins without our permission
We can hold our breath and keep on wishin
Or we can take it for a ride


When the brown returns to the leaves
I feel all that's written inside of me
When this world becomes too much to hold
Let it go

They say that time takes time
So I take my time
With my paperbacks and my box of wine
I take my time
