lyrics

You were light on your toes
And we watched your garden grow
Now you're falling all over
And the weeds just come and go as they please

Remember when there was a glow
And the fear just didn’t show
Remember we would talk it over
But now I can't get you on the phone
Because you're in jail. Epic fail.

Oh no. I let go.
When I was supposed to be there.
So long. Something's wrong
And I can't make you care.

There's a way that you can go.
That'll take you somewhere new.
Or a place to call your home.
Maybe one you already knew, that isn’t jail.

Your taillights. Like bright little red eyes.
Smaller and smaller and into the night  
All eyes on you like somebody died
Hoping maybe this summer’s the one you'll get it right.
Maybe the boat that you missed will come back to your shore and forgive you some.
Let you onboard and then take you from here.
Or maybe there ain't enough metaphors left in the world caused we've used them all trying to make this better than it is.

Oh no. I let go.
When I was supposed to be there.
So long. Something's wrong
And I can't make you care.

It's a funny thing, your soul
If you feed it, it'll grow.
But I swear Ill never know  
What yours is hungry for
Cause it seems like jail.
