Swaying

Posted on May 13, 2014

Let’s just be barflies, yeah we’ll shut ourselves in.
We’ll carve our names in the tables while the world outside spins.
We stare at the jukebox like our own private lightshow, and it’s all we need. See we’ve got sin and release, excuses and peace,
And nothing to hold but a glass.

And still we keep on swaying
Out of time with the world.
Yeah we keep on swaying
Just you and me girl.

Let’s just be vagrants, yeah we’ll camp on a hill.
Yeah we’ll watch the red sunset and feel the night grow still.
Just you and me under this sparkling canopy, and we’re trembling.
We’re lost and alone with all this beauty we can’t own,
And nothing to hold but our hands.

And still we keep on swaying
Out of time with the world.
Yeah we keep on swaying
Just you and me girl.

The world’s forgotten about us and we forgot how to live in it.
And anyway, no one wants us there.
We’re chewed up, and spit out, hit bottom, burned out –
But we keep swaying, and it don’t matter where.

Let’s just be hitchers, yeah we’ll thumb ‘cross this land.
We’ll go everywhere for free, and we’ll explore with no plan.
The radio is mariachi tunes. The scenery is sand dunes in the distance.
We’re aimless and poor. You hang your hand out the car door
With nothing to hold but the wind.

And still we keep on swaying
Out of time with the world.
Yeah we keep on swaying
Just you and me girl.
