ValencourtSlowed Down

She knows it's all over
The expressions on my face
Keep giving me away
My smile, my eyes
Can't bear to lie another day
The truth has started surfacing

Our hearts don't want the same thing
We're much more selfish as we're aging
And slowing down
No, I can't commit to no one
I can't guarantee a place
I'll slow it down

Her body contorts
And readjusts to simpler frames
We are just in similar space and time
Both shallow, and perfectly numb
I've changed so much

Our hearts don't want the same thing
We're much more selfish as we're aging
And slowing down
No, I can't commit to no one
I can't guarantee a place
I'll slow it down

But I'll deny it
Keep dragging it out
Through the same routine, it's fruitless
Our bodies are so useless combined
My smile
Keeps tripping the wire

Our hearts don't want the same thing
We're much more selfish as we're aging
And slowing down
No, I can't commit to no one
I can't guarantee a place
I'll slow it down
