lyrics

Let’s get reckless like the ocean ‘cause I’m careless like the sea.
I watched you walk inside this crowded room, trying to drink the void in you.
We’re all searching for something intangible, breaking moons apart to let the ocean know.

You taught me a lot about confidence, a common place, and settling.
I taught you all about love instead, petty theft, and remembering.
Sitting tongue out and spinning, traded true love for a ring.
Walk the shores of Mexico and finally calmed her seas.

You taught me a lot about confidence, a common place, and settling.
I taught you all about love instead, petty theft, and remembering.
So crack my heart, and let you finish those lines,
‘cause the actors that we play are taking on our lives.

Of all the things she swore she ever meant, still in my head it’s “the difference.”
I guess you were just smarter than the gate to drug use and awkward sex.
My best friends will be the death of me, but I gotta say it’s the only way to be.
Did your best to try and find change, nickel and dimed but pennies ain’t got nothing to say.

She crashes those waves, she is dead weight.
Did you ever find change?
