lyrics

I was thinking lately, I could only stay
To rue the days that I sat wasted
In another place to count the ways,
And I – I think maybe
The time went past a little fast for me,
But she saves me, cos there's nothing else
That she would have had me be.

Well I could live forever,
But there'll never be a way to go back there,
When you're older –
I lost it in a paperback where I live slowly
Cos it takes me all my time to get from being lonely.
I guess I should forget about that, cos...

CH:
I've been to the edge of the world,
And I've sailed the oceans in a pea-green girl,
And if I got washed up on the shore,
It's cos it's not until you're nineteen
That you know what seventeen was for.

I live like a TV – they fill my eyes
With all the lies that I think undermine me,
Till I learn the actor's twenty-five,
And I – I am not sure now
If it's quite the same to win the day
As to really need to.
I guess I don't forget about you, but...

(Repeat CH)

And I've been to the edge of the world,
And I've sailed the oceans in a pea-green girl,
And if you get washed up on the shore,
It's cos it's not until you're nineteen
That you'll know what seventeen was for.
