When We're Older

from by Borrow Tomorrow

lyrics

Funny just how quickly we forget the things we’ve grown to cherish for so long
Wash away under the covers everything we’ve learned about each other, so what went wrong?
I’m not willing to concede defeat just yet, in fact I feel there’s surely something left to be debated
Give me one more chance to take you home again. I’ll never let you go again, oh I swear
Come inside before the leaves fall from their branches
Feel so helpless when I’m staring at the ocean
Spread my arms as if to fly but nothing happens
Maybe when we’re older and we’ve found what we’ve been looking for in others that we don’t possess
I suppose we’ll shake our heads and hope that we were right when we decided not to settle for less
I only hope the look upon my face does not reveal the bewildered soul underneath
I never knew how easily the walls I’ve built getting over you come down with just one breeze
Come inside before the leaves fall from their branches
Feel so helpless when I’m staring at the ocean
Spread my arms as if to fly but nothing happens
I’m not willing to concede defeat just yet
In fact, I feel there’s always something left to be debated
Give me one more chance to take you home again
I’ll never let you go again, oh I swear
Come inside before the leaves fall from their branches
Feel so helpless when I’m staring at the ocean
Spread my arms as if to fly but nothing happens
