lyrics

There’s something in the middle of the sun for y’all

I once had a house that I felt in my soul
It was made of stones, very old
And when it got cold I would shiver in my clothes
But that’s not how I’d like to be known

I live for summer days that are Spring at night
with the moon coming in through the clouds
And I’ve avoided living my life just to fight
But I still haven’t figured out how

No one can express how deeply they feel
So all I can say is “I feel deep”
And I’ve climbed hills that are steeper than my depth
So sometimes my ends don’t meet.

I’ve put myself in so many other people’s shoes
that I’ve forgotten which ones are mine
and if I lived any longer than the end of this song
then I would say that I’ve lived past my time.
