Lyrics

But I wish you never had to settle
For a cold phone, instead of a warm wake up tone
But I wish you never had to settle
For an annoying necessity, instead of a comforting chest cavity
I wanna be a part of your inside jokes
I wanna know about each pill you take and
Where deep in your in body it goes
What diseases do you think you have?
How bad it gets when you said
"Oh, it’s gonna get bad."
What tragedies you’ve faced
And to know when this place finally burns down
They won’t find our bodies in the waste
And I wish you never had to settle
For a bed too big, instead of stories of shit you got into way back
Back when you were a kid
Well I’m no longer looking for a filler
A random body to hold
I’m done stopping time
I’m finally ready to get old
And I know I’m nervous
And I’m feeling anxious
But I’m coming back to you
I’m done looking for some spaceship
And when I get there
It’ll be a storm;
I’ll be the tornado
That keeps you warm
I’ll be the tornado
That keeps you warm
