These are old lyrics that I've had kicking around for a decade. I never quite knew how to arrange them, and I love the sweet, dreamy, simple treatment we came up with. This song feels to me like a lovely way to wrap up the album.
I’ve been trying for weeks now
to find a place to find some peace
a place where I could sit and have a coffee
where I could sit and read a book
and this isn’t the view I had in mind
but I guess it'll just have to do
and I kinda like the way the pink skyscraper
cuts right through the blue
and I’m trying to make the best of a pretty good situation
and I hope you know how hard I try
to live here in the present
not be a ghost of the past
‘cause some days I’m barely getting by
and I try to keep my head on my shoulders
not let it wander off like it’s so prone to do.
‘cause who will keep the rest of me together?
I can’t pin that whole weight on you.
and you are sitting at this café
and you are telling me your stories
and I’m learning you
