lyrics

I know how long the drives are
I know how good the weed is
I know where all the raves are
They throw them every weekend

I know all of the dive bars
Even though I’ve never seen them
I’ve met all of my heroes
Even though they didn’t need it

I’ll show you gorgeous views
Things we’ll never afford to use
I’ll show you all the local spots
They’re trying not to lose

I’ll show you true excess
I’ll show you the opposite
I’ll show you I know this:

The sunsets are to die for
And the long nights never end
All the constants are changing
We’ll never be the same again

It’s expensive and ruthless
And you’re born into it fighting
When you drive from the mountains
You don’t see a horizon

I know how to get lost sometimes
I don’t follow maps, none of that, I change my mind
When the current splits, acquiesce, take your time
Make new friendships, tourniquet, live your life how you like

Sometimes it does feel like a game
You’ve been drafted into and now forced to play
I don’t make the rules, I just deviate
Throw down my jersey and stare into space

When the sunsets are to die for
And the long nights never end
All the constants are changing
We’ll never be the same again

It’s expensive and ruthless
And you’re born into it fighting
When you drive from the mountains
You don’t see a horizon

And the sunsets are to die for
And the long nights never end
All the constants are changing
We’ll never be the same again

It’s expensive and ruthless
And you’re born into it fighting
When you drive from the mountains
You don’t see a horizon, just big blue

“It's hard to recognize that life isn't a holding action, but a process. It's hard to learn that we don't leave the best parts of ourselves behind ... the experiences and the growth are grafted onto our lives. And when we exit, we can take ourselves along —
quite gracefully.”

―Ellen Goodman

The debut LP Graceful Exit will be available in 2022.
