This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both Of Our Sadness

lyrics

This town ain’t big enough for both of our sadness
Grab your things, ‘cause we’re going away
I know you believed we could follow our dreams but
Baby, there’s only thieves, so it’s time to leave

A lonely green ocean away
From all the plans we’d made
And I can’t see the horizon

‘Cause everybody’s hanging around
To set you up and knock you down
And there’s no life beyond them

They say that it’s great
And a safe place to raise up the kids
But there’s no escape
From the wandering space that we miss

This town ain’t big enough for both of our sadness
Grab your things, ‘cause we’re going away
I know you believed we could follow our dreams but
Baby, there’s only thieves, so it’s time to leave

All their words are running around
Faster than the speed of sound
And there’s no one to turn to
Except for me and you

So please, I can’t breathe
In the trees that have grown over me
And you know it’s true
What they do to you in reverie

And I know when we go
We’ll look back and see things we could miss
So please, can we leave
And get on with that reminisce

This town ain’t big enough for both of our sadness
Close the door and the future is free
You know I believe what you want it to be, but
If we're going to be this team
Then it’s here, or it’s me
