lyrics

I'm not that sad today
My strings and spokes keep me afloat
And words that I won't say are making ground
I'll trace the road and find if the patterns match those in my mind

Niamh broke down one night
We kissed between two doors, but nowadays she seems alright
We're not as close, but who really cares
When we can laugh at ourselves we know we'll be fine

Much like that time when we were riding bikes and you told me i was good at exploring
Now i'm on my way and I'm thinking 'god, I hope she's right'

I've been writing down my dreams of living in suburbia
Another nameless street with woods behind my house
I'll stray all night
You'll find me shouting down car headlights

I'll cry from the windows 'my life has value', but here it can't be shown
Let's flee this place, not pay our taxes, and maybe we'll find something worth running from

Maybe without my phone I wouldn't feel so at loss with all the things making other people happy
And I can live in Vermont cos I know that David got it right
