lyrics

i’ve drawn out maps and pictures and figures
of what i think my life should be
i’ve plotted graphs and constructed charts
for my goals and expectations
and all the to do lists i write
and all the quiet aspirations i keep inside
have me struggling to not feel quite so complacent

nothing at this point is how it sounded in the ad
and the world’s not waiting on me to stop playing pretend
i almost don’t feel anything when you shatter me with your gaze
i’m just standing still while you transcend

tomorrow has gotten here so fast
and it doesn’t feel like any time has passed
and the future is just some abstract idea

yesterday has come and gone
and it won’t be soon before long
we’ll be toasting away another year

nothing so far is how it sounded in the ad
and the world’s not waiting on me to stop playing pretend
i almost don’t feel anything when you shatter me with your gaze
i’m just standing still while you transcend

and i am finally starting to see
that plans are so arbitrary
they haven’t gotten me anywhere so far
tell me what’s the point
in worrying about things out of my control
it’s hard enough trying to shoot for par
i spent so much time trying not to get left behind
and now i just want to be where you are

tomorrow has gotten here so fast
and it doesn’t feel like anytime has passed
and the future’s never been so clear
