lyrics

So I’ve been quiet lately
And it’s all my own fault
So I’ve been taking a break
And I don’t want to at all

‘Cause the time is advancing
And I’m here slow-dancing
Feeling it’s all part of the fall

So I won’t wait and I won’t wonder
I’ll just chase away the summer
And if this fire is under water
How long can it last before it’s out?

So I’ve been keeping busy
Like it’s some kind of excuse
Walking around this city
Like it’s on the list of “things to lose”

But the time is advancing
And I’m still slow-dancing
Spinning around the empty room

So I won’t wait and I won’t wonder
I’ll just chase away the summer
And if this fire is under water
How long can it last before it’s out?

I’ve gotten too good at holding my breath
I’ve gotten too likely to forget
And with every word I don’t say,
This fire gets washed away

‘cause the time is advancing
And I’m still slow-dancing
Hoping it won’t all go to waste

So I won’t wait and I won’t wonder
I’ll just chase away the summer
And if this fire is under water
If it rains, if it thunders
If the world’s going under,
How long will it last before it’s out?
