lyrics

I’d settle for some time
Round here
Taking
In all of the scenery
Light slipping through the trees
Trying not to touch the rain
I’d settle for some way
To go
Back in
Time so I can be right here
Watch the ground disappear
As the green takes its place

Theres some folks that try
To ask me why
Why I move like I do inside
Paint some pictures to hide behind
And dream of another place
But round here sleep echoes
It won’t stay on your pillow
You learn quickly to settle
If you wanna lose the weight

I’d settle for some time
Away
From all
All the moments in the day
Moments that you can’t escape
As the noise takes ahold
I’d settle for some way
To take
Us out
Maybe two or three years
Out to where you can’t here
Any noise but you’re own

Theres some folks that try
To tell me why
Why I need to step in stride
Ink the contract, let it dry
And start living life
But I don’t wanna hear the echoes
Off of buildings, through tunnels
I want to hear it grow
Against the quiet of the night

I’d settle for a grave
Round here
Under
The boughs of the tallest tree
Roots kindly cradle me
As everything turns to green

Round here sleep echoes
It won’t stay on your pillow
You learn quickly to settle
If you wanna lose the weight
But I don’t wanna hear the echoes
Off of buildings, through tunnels
I want to hear it grow
Against the quiet of the night
