lyrics

We're bouncing through the light
Keeping balloons off the ground
Kicking footballs through crumpled sweaters
with a plastic bag as a parachute
and we still watch cartoons, all the shadows are lava, so tread carefully

I've got a box to put our favourite past times in
But I haven't touched it in years
I've kept it safe in case you come around again
Just like it was before
I'm not waiting for a punchline I'm just looking for some closure

You changed
Act your age
Looks like our friendship is sinking
Good things
Come to an end
Never asked me what i’m drinking
We're saved
In the back page
Crumpled paper’s not for inking
You've lost
What made you my friend
This is not my home

And at the final moment where it’s apparent that your old friends don’t matter
I hope you take solace in surrounding yourself with people who can’t hold a candle to us
You’ll burn out before you’re ready and your transparency will show, where the fuck have you been?

Stumble through bills and bars and I don’t know where we stand
Drawing on past nostalgia I’ve got no pen to hand
One day we'll laugh about it that's what I stay for
My cards are on the table talk less and say more

You changed
Act your age
Looks like our friendship is sinking
Good things
Come to an end
Never asked me what i’m drinking
We're saved
In the back page
Crumpled paper’s not for inking
You've lost
What made you my friend
This is not my home
