about

A tribute to the second person and simple titles.

lyrics

You enter the pines from the outskirts
But eat pie from the inside out
You lose your power to fly
The moment you begin to doubt
You've only ever succeeded
Through pretending when sleep is near
You've only seen one sunset
And it's been setting for billions of years

CHORUS
You laugh, you love, you push, you thrive
You cry, you love, you struggle, survive
Sometimes you succeed
And sometimes you fall
You will either be you or nothing at all

If you live threescore years and ten
Surviving all and sundry
You'll have languished for a decade
In the prison we call 'Monday'
You're all you'll ever have - to
Compromise would be a crime
Your name is your name only -
One day it will slip
From a muttering lip
For the last and final time

CHORUS

BRIDGE

Someday
Someone like you
Might just like you
And hold you close
They'll see
The best of you
The worst of you
And they'll choose both

CHORUS

You laugh, you love, you push, you thrive
You cry, you love, you struggle, survive
Sometimes you extinguish
Sometimes you ignite
You can only write a story only you can write
