lyrics

And so here we are
nostalgic for a life led years ago
Avoiding contact with the very things
that we both love the most

I'm tired of all the angry little shapes
you're making with your mouth
I'd like to maybe get a car
point it someshere and get out

Perhaps I'll make a list
a catalog of opportunities
that we have missed along the way
to this shady dead-end street

The walls feel closer than your skin
and they are nearly just as thin
We've been replaced too easily
by the sound of shrill machines

The sweetest hum becomes a roar
I'll be with you one summer more
And though we've tried to find our way
we're only lost and lonely
I know nothing's right
and nothing stays the same
We work the engines every night
and pray for silence all day

Tomorrow is holding you a place
if you can catch the right bus
Remove that sadness from your face
we're leaving sadness behind us

With just a rented moving van
and some reluctant sleight-of-hand
I'll disappear

The sweetest hum becomes a roar
I'll be with you one summer more
And though we've tried to find our way
we're only lost and lonely
I know nothing's right
and nothing stays the same
We work the engines every night
and pray for silence all day
