lyrics

If it was my time and you didn’t want to let me go
Would you pull me inside, give me everything you know?
Like it could save me, oh like I’d be free
Then I would die. I’d be free.

In ditches we walk, curse the soles of our muddy feet.
The louder we talk, the less we’re saying when we speak.
And I dare you to stand without planting your heels.
Learn to dance, dear. Stretch your lungs, see how it feels.

And I am satisfied to say that I love and I love for good.
See you whole and justified, there is nothin’ that you need to hide.
My heart wants to know you, not to figure you out,
Wouldn’t change you if I thought that I could.
But I know how to walk away when I should.

The setting sun sears the ocean sky, clouds burst their neon souls to light,
Tell you all they’ve been dying to say before they fade into the night.
So when you meet me, deep pink, orange, or blue
You know me deeply, my colors reflected in you.

And I am satisfied to say that I love and I love for good.
See you whole and justified, there is nothin’ that you need to hide.
My heart wants to know you, not to figure you out,
Wouldn’t change you if I thought that I could.
But I know how to walk away when I should.

Ohh, but I should.

And I am satisfied to say that I love and I love for good.
But I know how to walk away when I should.
