lyrics

You To Someone

We are living in a time
Of no pauses
We used to tell stories
On red and black vases

Everybody’s elders
Have always been wrong
Half of the time
Course they’re bound
To be right
Some of the time
Plenty of times
Or is that just lately

It’s got so easy getting
To someone
But it’s so hard
Getting thru to someone
I don’t make friends
To say I knew someone
I’m too damn fine just to do someone
I wanna be - I wanna be
Just wanna be
You to someone

If your sister speaks
With you honestly
Count yourself lucky
She didn’t used to
It ain’t all honey
Yet you take it
And you’ll like it
Enough
But that’s only lately

If you feel the moon
Hanging wrong above you
It’s cuz you tried
To turn the tides
To be a sum to someone
You type and fail
To give your guts
To someone
As they photograph their closet
And they cc you blindly
Like like like like like like
Like - its all the same

It’s got so easy getting
To someone
But it’s so hard
Getting thru to someone
I don’t make friends
To say I knew someone
I’m too damn fine just to do someone
I wanna be - I wanna be
You to someone
