Well I cant give you everything you want
But I could give you what you thought you need
A map to keep beneath your seat
You’ll read to me in time I’ll get you there
But fold it up so we don’t find our way back soon
Nobody knows we’re here
We could park the van and walk to town
Find the cheapest bottle of wine that we could find
And talk about the road behind
How getting lost is not a waste of time
The water mole will take us home
And in a moment we will sing as the forest sleeps
It’s all for the sake of arriving with you
Well its all for the sake of arriving with you
Well I will make the table into a bed
The candle is burning down its time to rest
Can’t take back things already gone
I could give you promises for keeps
And I would only take them back
If they become your own and you give them to me
And its all for the sake of arriving with you
Well its all for the sake of arriving with you
We could make this into anything
We could make this grow and become what we’ll be
This could make us into anything
It could make us become more than what you see
Mhm hm hm hm hm hm
Mhm hm hm hm hm hm
Its just like it feels
