lyrics

I remember you were smiling
As we travelled up the coast
When the train pulled in I kissed your hand
Met your eyes and pulled you close

You were flying down a mountain
The wind was whipping at your clothes
The one I took adventures with
Was the girl I loved the most

But if you spend too much time
Thinking about where it all went wrong
You might forget the ones we are
Are not the things that we have done
And you would laugh at the jokes that we'd tell, though you might be the only one
And that alone would have been enough for me

I captured you with words
I'm in the pictures you have drawn
Both allow us to relive the past
When the past itself is gone

They put you in the movies
They put your sister in songs
But I wrote this one for you
Maybe she'll help you sing along

You always meet a deadline
Grit is written on your face
The eleventh hour came and went
But you always won the race

But if you spend too much time
Thinking about where it all went wrong
You might forget the ones we are
Are not the things that we have done
And you came through at the ends of the nights when I was rising with the sun
And that alone would have been enough for me

There was the time it all came down
The sadness scarred across your face
When the refuge of your bed
Became a trusted hiding place

And when you're wrestling with your demons
There is a line you can't retrace
Between who you were and how you are
When you're so forcibly displaced

But if you spend too much time
Thinking about where it all went wrong
You might forget the ones we are
Are not the things that we have done
And you would cry for ones that you loved when there was nothing to be done
And that alone would have been enough for me

You told me casting off your anchors
Doesn't mean you're lost at sea
Shallow waters and calm skies
Won't make a sailor out of me

You put a lock upon your memories
And swallowed down the only key
You bought a ticket back to Kansas
Sat beneath the family tree

But if you spend too much time
Thinking about where it all went wrong
You might forget the ones we are
Are not the things that we have done
And you knew what I meant when I said I always wanted to be a Tenenbaum
And that alone would have been enough for me
