Family Ties

lyrics

waiting after the fight
you light up my room in the night
when you walk in
as a child
when I was a child
waiting for the next escape

this is how
I avoided waking up
thinking I was dead meat
a little love
there's no other way to be
you said for the last time

give all your fears to me now
put on your boots come outside
I wanna play with you
wanna play with you
watch the clouds with you
watch the stars with you
feel the tall grass with you
avoid the family inside
and all the ties

I was just like
a lonely train chugging along
in that old western film
as a child
when I was a child
introvert, where's the next escape

at our table
we avoided talking up
across the chairs at dinner time
this is how we dine
awkward and silent for the last five years
another failed suburban dream

change all your ideals now
put on your boots come outside
I wanna play with you
I wanna show you something
sometimes what we think we want
is not what we really want
just taking it easy with you
avoid the family inside
and all the ties
for a moment in time
