Tape over tape
And over time
Before and after is on my mind

It's not hard
Letting go
But it's hard
Even so

And you say
‘Come here and sit down
Don't try to own it all’

Debate its weight
Into decline
Before and after seems less defined

It's not hard
Stealing woe
But it's hard
Stealing the show

And you say ‘Come here and sit down
Don't try to figure it out”

And when I'm hard, jaded and stark
Naked let's face it, I'm falling apart

I know
I know
I know
I should know better

And you say ‘Come here and sit down
Don't try to figure it out’

    My InterpretationI think this song could be about aging. Could also be the steps to a breakdown.
