John Moreland - It Don’t Suit Me (Like Before) lyrics

Well we haven’t got all night Come on and raise a toast We’re only one time aiming for the sun Thought we’d be grinding all our gears Til we’re giving up the ghost And grieving from the ties that we’d undone I’m still staring at the sky, like at the start With all these heavy anchors on my heart But they don’t suit me, babe, like before They don’t suit me like they did before Always waving flags and waging wars But it don’t suit me like before It don’t suit me like before Well folks like me and you We don’t know how to call a truce And when we can’t lose the fight, we just lose touch So we sit comparing scars Strumming on the stars And leaning on the oldest, closest crutch Don’t let me turn to dust to turn a phrase Could you help me wash these years off of my face? I used to have a prisoner’s point of view Now I only care for being seen by you
