lyrics

Oh sweet life, won't you stay for awhile
Wanna see you like I’m new, I wanna see you like I am child
These bones are so old, forget what to do
Just lay there in pieces, alone, with the clothes they outgrew

When the days start to blur and repeat
Feels like cement getting hard around your feet
Forget how to change, forget that you’re free
I only remember that we die

Won't you tell me that lie
You sing to yourself every night
Keeps you seated every year
Keeps you stranded in the same old places
Every reaction and every fear
I've seen the light in your eyes
Fall in the spaces and I didn’t know why
Have I, been away so long

Oh sweet lady, won't you wait somewhere for me
I'm not done yet, I don’t wanna be the things you see
Old dogs can't learn new tricks, I heard them say
I know I still got room left, I know that these bones can be saved

When the days start to feel like defeat
Bruised on your soul, scar you can't see
Remember the pain, forget you're free
I only remember that we die

Won't you tell me that lie
You sing to yourself every night
Keeps you seated every year
Keeps you stranded in the same old places
Every reaction and every fear
I've seen the light in those eyes
Fall in the spaces and I didn’t know why
Have I, been away so long

Someone told me that a slave
Doesn't know that there's an exit
Doesn't know he can be saved

Like a bird left in a cage
He can fly, it's in his blood
But in his heart he's still afraid

Where did you learn to be so brave?
Life is nothing more
Than this capacity to change

One step closer to the grave
Stiffer than a statue
Like Apollo I crumble and fade

I wanna change, I wanna change
Don’t want this life to stay the same
