about

To be honest, I think these are some my best lyrics so far. Thanks to a little notebook I got from a friend, so I didn’t forget any brilliant ideas for lyrics. I used lots of separate sentences I liked to create these lyrics about the painful ending of a relationship. The chorus is actually about falling back on each other again, even when you know better.

Sander played the guitars, and I think thanks to him the instrumental bit after the first chorus is my favorite part. I love how the acoustic and electric guitars mix with the piano.

lyrics

Giving up is always easier
than trying to fix what never
really has worked before.

I remember when even gravity
couldn't keep us both from flying,
but you were too much for me.

But I crashed and burned.
And I know it's hurting you.
It feels like the future's called off.
Now I'm calling on you.

I guess it won't make it easier,
But it feels so right
just to know you're alive.
You're alive.
I guess it won't make us happier,
but it feels so right
just to know I'm alive.
Just to know I'm alive.

Playing shipwreck with our sugar cubes
in coffee that we made to
save us from sinking down.

People say it's just bad timing,
so maybe when we're older.
Baby, I'll wait for you.

And if I had the choice
I'd still want you back.
But I have no choice.
