lyrics

Sometimes my mind goes back in time from time to time
I didn’t realize until I realized that things aren’t always cut and dry
And that’s okay and that’s all right, I’m here for you while you cry
Tomorrow you’ll text, “I’m sorry, drunk,” and I’ll reply
“Nbd, we good yo,” or “Hey, it’s fine”
Whatever feels right at the time

How am I supposed to swim upstream
With all these ghosts following me?

The crescendos they were stirring
The movements were goddamn literary
But the soft spots were depressing
And the fortes they were petty when they should have been profound
But all that doesn’t matter now

Touching shit while wearing a rubber glove still feels like touching shit
And pissing on some ashes don’t make that match unlit

There are things that we both wish we didn’t have to live with
There are things that we both wish we could have done different
There are things that we both wanna do but know that we’d regret
But the river of life goes on, and it’s taking us with it
