Time Machine

You lit the fire, then drank the water
You send that one, let me standing all alone.
We wrote a story, we turned the pages
You changed the end like everybody said you would

I should have seen it coming
It should have sent me running
I swear I could be loving you.

If I had a time machine
And if life was a movie scene
I’d rewind, and I’d tell me, „run! “
We were never meant to be
So if I had a time machine
I’d go there, and I’d tell me, „run, run! “

I got your letter, I got your words
I stacked them higher,
I need more than little boys!
Your broken choice don’t mean a thing
You made that, boy
Good luck falling back…

I should have seen it coming
It should have sent me running
That’s what I get for loving you.

If I had a time machine
And if life was a movie scene
I’d rewind, and I’d tell me, „run! “
We were never meant to be
So if I had a time machine
I’d go there, and I’d tell me, „run, run! “

Oh, your love it got me higher
Then it drove me off the world
But the higher up you go, the further you will fall!
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

If I had a time machine
And if life was a movie scene
I’d rewind, and I’d tell me, „run! “
We were never meant to be
So if I had a time machine
I’d go there, and I’d tell me, „run, run! “
If I had a time machine
And if life was a movie scene
I’d rewind, and I’d tell me, „run! “
We were never meant to be
So if I had a time machine
I’d go there, and I’d tell me, „run, run! “

Wonderful Unknown

wallpaper1259261
Oh, let me wear your overcoat,
my bones are super chill and all the ponies have gone home
Oh, walking through Manhattan
with the ache from last night’s smile still smarting up from my toes

Here we go, dancing on our own,
inside this house that we have never known,
Here we go, going in alone
into the dark and wonderful unknown,
let us go, let us go

Oh, we make bread on Sundays
and the little ones are climbing up the walls, up the walls
Oh, nothing lasts forever but the sound of love astounds me every time that it calls

Here we go, dancing on our own,
inside this house that we have never known, never known,
Here we go, going in alone into the dark and wonderful unknown
let us go, let us go

In the best way, you’ll be the death of me
In the best way, you’ll be the death of me
In the best way, you’ll be the death of me
In the best way

Oh, got your father’s wristwatch on,
the one your mother gave him when they thought the world won’t end,
Oh, we will be there one day with a smile and nothing more to say goodbye to a friend

Here we go, dancing on our own,
inside this house that we have never known, never known
Here we go, going in alone,
into the dark and wonderful unknown,
let us go let us go

Here we go, dancing on our won,
inside this house that we have never known, never known
Here we go, going in alone,
into the dark and wonderful unknown,
let us go, let us go

In the best way you’ll be the death of me
In the best way you’ll be the death of me
In the best way you’ll be the death of me
In the best way you’ll be the death of me
In the best way you’ll be the death of me
In the best way you’ll be the death of me
In the best way you’ll be the death of me

Even in the harshest of winter I feel so warm
Even when the marks climb up the wall I still feel small

This is my home
This is my home
Where I go when I’ve got nowhere else to go
This is my home
This is my home
Where I go when I don’t know where else to go

I know everything about this place, it wears your face
Even when my body blows away, my soul will stay

This is my home
This is my home
Where I go when I’ve got nowhere else to go
This is my home
This is my home
Where I go when I don’t know where else to go

Do you feel safe?
Do you feel safe?
Do you feel safe?
Do you feel safe?

This is my home
This is my home
Where I go when I’ve got nowhere else to go
This is my home
This is my home
Where I go when I don’t know where else to go
