lyrics

Same old again, a look into nowhere too soon
We'll marvel at thoughts or gawp at the size of the moon
We'll never forget what they said, how the cards we were dealt were from a trick deck,
But that worry inside of her head, how it grew

Just past the house there's a bar to get in from this cold
We can pine for the past like we know how it feels to get old
Tracing the tabletop's grooves
Where it gathers a glimpse of a world in a room
Where time isn't welcome to loom, so it goes

'cause there's damp in the hourglass, binding the grains of sand
Slowing down time, that miserable thief
‘cause the future seems big today, way more than yesterday
Make yourself bigger and show it your teeth

A smudge on your hand means you must've left something at home
It's happened again, you forget who's the voice on the phone
And little by little it cracks, sentences muddled and worried looks back
From a face that you feel like you know, but you don't
From a face that would muster a laugh at your jokes

'cause there's damp in the hourglass, watch as it binds the sand
Slowing down time, that miserable thief
And the future seems big today, way more than yesterday
Make yourself bigger and show it your teeth

Same old again, a look into nowhere too soon
We'll marvel at thoughts or gawp at the size of the moon
We'll never forget what they said, how the cards we were dealt were from a trick deck,
But that worry inside of her head, how it grew
