lyrics

Spend so much time thinking about the long run
We don’t open our eyes during all the shorter ones

No, babe, I can’t tie any knots right now
I see love and I want to believe it but
I’m still untangling all these pits I’ve grown deep
down in my stomach, well
I am a pear tree, apparently
I want nobody yet they still appear next to me
Be my best friend, you can be my war
Something worth destroying myself for
No, actually wait no -- I’ve seen this all before
Love’s an addiction
and I’m sicker than I’ve ever been
So admit me, you can commit me
Fact check every moment in between
No tomorrow, just today
No plans, no flights to the UK
LA or DC, the leaves change and they want me to
leave, but I stay still and I stand still
Start every talk with the same spiel

Spend so much time thinking about the long run
We don’t open our eyes during all the shorter ones
It’s been a good time, we’ve had a lot of fun
So let’s open our eyes during all the shorter runs

Not a full sprint, I had a splinter
Still holding hands when I first met her
Back to back and overlap well
being alone is something that I can’t
No wait I can! I moved to Boston with all my best
friends, I’ve got no plans, and though this city haunts
me with ex-girlfriends
They just remind me of who I woulda been
if I wasn’t who I am
on my own

Spend so much time thinking about the long run
We don’t open our eyes during all the shorter ones
It’s been a good time, we’ve had a lot of fun
So let’s open our eyes during all the shorter runs

Well, take it easy
You can take it slow
There’s no need to rush
We’ve got nowhere to go

And take it easy
You can take it slow
There’s no need to rush
We’ve got nowhere to go, well

I just wanna grow, on my own
and find my way home

Spend so much time thinking about the long run
We don’t open our eyes during all the shorter ones
It’s been a good time, we’ve had a lot of fun
So let’s open our eyes during all the shorter runs
