lyrics

Well I wouldn’t mind if it was certain
But we’re broken in half by doubt each day
Still we’re making molehills out of mountains anyway
More and more each day

I’ve battled hard to be here, long dark winters
Freezing fingers, frozen thumbs
I’ve followed you for 12 years
Like a songbird singing sweetly to the sun
Bending over backwards I want you to like me
Want you to be wrong
The train ride lasts a lifetime, stopping too much
Sorrow’s bound to come

But the days get shorter without reason
Squeeze the water from the shore
Loving changes with the seasons
But we will change for it no more

I struggled to remember the beginning
Back then we were both just kids
I drove there for an hour just to tell you
That I love you, that I care
Exams on the horizon, pressure rising
Scared that I’ll impair
The gritted roads are winding
Fog flack blinding, common sense thread bare

But the days get shorter without reason
Squeeze the water from the shore
Loving changes with the seasons
But we will change for it no more

When the grass is always greener
Talking cheaper, loving keener in my mind
We’re aiming for a future that will suit us
Stand the test of time

But the days get shorter without reason
Squeeze the water from the shore
Loving changes with the seasons
But we will change for it no more

On the day that you left
With the love that you’d kept
So dear, so dear
On the day that you left me
This impossible test
It was so clear, so clear
