The Future You Is Forever

about

This one's got that particular brand of dark melancholy coupled with nostalgia that reminds me why I started making music in the first place.

lyrics

Someday we’ll return here
Aching for this moment, this night
The awareness hits me
Soft but brutal like kids in a pillow fight
But let’s keep it together
And pretend we don’t know the truth

Everything will change
Nothing stays the same
The future you is forever

Our entangled fingers
Tremble as we take our first breath
The nostalgia lingers
Like the sound of your voice on a worn cassette
But I know things can never
Be the way that they used to be

But when the mountain crumbles
And monuments to love collapse
We’ll celebrate together
The majesty of our broken past
For now let’s act our age
Embrace the glory days

You’ll wake up tomorrow
At the top of the radio dial
And make fun of the music
I’m the first to admit that it’s not my style
But for now I’m content
To tap my fingers and sing along.
