Grow Wings Like Everyone

from These Things Take Time by limesix



This is another song where half of the lyrics are very old (verses 1 and 2), and half of them were re-written to be good enough to record (verse 3 and the coda). Also from April to April.


Water can't take us where we need to go
Sinking with a paddle always comes too slow
Grow wings like an angel and take to flight
And I'll try to catch you when you hit the light

Stop signs and hard crimes never made you lame
But you tried to convince me of another name
And when you need a jetstream, you know I will provide
Lifting and falling with the smallest ride

Once you were true, but now an alibi
takes the place of the memory that you tried to hide
And I might have an answer I found in the dark,
but you have to ask me, you have to ask me, you have to ask me

And everyone can see what you do to me
And it's getting later and we're getting older, like everyone
And this is a waste of time, but it's also the answer. It's the answer


from These Things Take Time, released April 17, 2020
Recorded in my garage and living room in Orlando, Florida in 2011.
