Lyrics


Remember counting the days
Remember grasping for moments
Freedom was a digit away

Remember thinking the world
Closed up on you like an eyelet
Peering through seeing proof

Remember when you were teenage
Staring up at the ceiling
Emotions like a runaway train

Remember making the promise
To yourself not to be cautious
Flawless in wondering

The watchful eyes they are misjudged
One breath, you’re on the cusp

You were eighteen, now you’re twenty one
Drew their lines then they changed their minds
You were eighteen, now you’re twenty one
Housed by rules now you're free to run

Remember when people told you
That you can’t be dreaming
The present luxuries fading
Like the air that you're breathing

Remember when you were three
Filling your lung without question
The first time that you fell in the sea
And could you ever imagine
If they board up the ocean
The cracks come immediately

The watchful eyes they are misjudged
One breath, you’re on the cusp

You were eighteen, now you’re twenty one
Drew their lines then they changed their minds
You were eighteen, now you’re twenty one
Housed by rules now you're free to run

The watchful eyes they are misjudged
One breath, you’re on the cusp

You were eighteen, now you’re twenty one
Drew their lines then they changed their minds
You were eighteen, now you’re twenty one
Housed by rules now you're free to run
