"Portugal" as written by and Kevin Ray Nicholas Petricca....
I know everyone you know
You know everyone I know
A venn diagram is one circle

You grow up when you're not looking
We grow up but without knowing
And all of a sudden I'm leaving

So I say I'm sorry I can't, I've got plans
'Cause I watched the time slip through my hands

But you don't know now
One day you'll learn
Growing up is a heavy leaf to turn
A heavy leaf to turn

Take me with you
Cus even on your own
You are not alone

Take me with you
'Cause even by yourself, my love
You are something else

One summer turns into ten summers
One lover turns into ten lovers
But this memory is still with me

Circles bring me in circles
Your clothes underneath my clothes
Once upon a time in Portugal

So I say I'm sorry I can't, I've got plans
'Cause I watched the time slip through my hands

But you don't know now
One day you'll learn
But growing up is a heavy leaf to turn
A heavy leaf to turn

Take me with you
'Cause even on your own
You are not alone

Take me with you
'Cause even by yourself, my love
You are something else

No matter what you want
Somebody else wants it just as bad
No matter what you got
Somebody else has got it worse
No matter when I got to you
Somebody else got to you first

So I say I'm sorry I can't, I've got plans
'Cause I watched the time slip through my hands

But you don't know now
One day you'll learn
That growing up is a heavy leaf to turn
A heavy leaf to turn

Take me with you
'Cause even on your own
You are not alone

Take me with you
'Cause even by yourself, my love
You are something else

Take me with you
'Cause even on your own (you are alone)
You are not alone

Take me with you
'Cause even by yourself
You carry with you anyone else

    I know everyone you know
    You know everyone I know
    Our Venn diagrams are one circle

    You grow up when I'm not looking
    We grow apart without knowing
    And all of a sudden I'm leaving

    So I say I'm sorry I can't, I've got plans
    As I watch the time slip through my hands

    What you don't know now,
    One day you'll learn
    Growing up is a heavy leaf to turn
    A heavy leaf to turn

    Take me with you
    'Cause even on your own,
    You are not alone

    Take me with you
    'Cause even by yourself, my love
    You are something else

    One summer turns into ten summers
    One lover turns into ten others
    But this memory is still with me

    So close, bring me in so close
    Your clothes underneath my clothes
    Once upon a time in Portugal

    So I say I'm sorry I can't, I've got plans
    As I watch the time slip through my hands

    What you don't know now,
    One day you'll learn
    Growing up is a heavy leaf to turn
    A heavy leaf to turn

    Take me with you
    'Cause even on your own,
    You are not alone

    Take me with you
    'Cause even by yourself, my love
    You are something else

    No matter what you want,
    Somebody else wants it just as bad
    No matter what you got,
    Somebody else has got it worse
    No matter when I got to you,
    Somebody else got to you first

    So I say I'm sorry I can't, I've got plans
    As I watch the time slip through my hands

    What you don't know now,
    One day you'll learn
    Growing up is a heavy leaf to turn
    A heavy leaf to turn

    Take me with you
    'Cause even on your own,
    You are not alone

    Take me with you
    'Cause even by yourself, my love
    You are something else

    Take me with you
    'Cause even on your own,
    You are not alone

    Take me with you
    'Cause even by yourself, my love
    You can carry with you anyone else
