lyrics

You make the biggest plans as if it's what you deserve,
but you whisper "tomorrow" as if it's a curse word,
and you see the ending without moving your restless feet,
and seem so confused when everyone decides to leave.
You forgot how to swim
and expect them to go underneath.

Can I make a suggestion? Don't turn your back on a lion,
and keep your ears open when everything's quiet.
That's when it matters most, right before the whole thing blows.
You don't want to be the only one who didn't see it coming
right when it matters most.

You make the biggest plans. You shoot arrows at the sun,
but you drink until morning like you're waiting for someone.
Do you think life is endless?
A big sky that we live in?
Or some ocean you float in with no destination?
The one who is never lost is the one with the compass.

Right when it matters most.
When you're desperate and all alone
Saying, "I didn't sign up for this.
Goodbye. I'm going fucking home."
That's when it matters most,
right before the whole thing blows
You don't want to be the only one
who didn't see it coming.

I see it coming.
