Vandaveer But Enough on That for Now Lyrics

sponsored links

We dipped our toes into the water
See if we would sink or swim
See myself in my little boy
Same wherewithal within
Life is such a temporary thing
Such a temporary thing
It is absolutely cruel and beautiful

We chipped off icicles in the winter cold
Went spearing in the snow
I caught up with my past
When I couldn't feel my toes
I was just a little boy again
Just a little boy again
It was momentary but man
It was beautiful

Oh but I got a long, long, long, long, long way to go
Yeah I got volumes and volumes to show, you
But enough on that for now
Yes, enough on that for now

We watched the robins in the cold
Strip the hollies to the bone
All the branches bled red
You can nearly hear them moan
Life is such a symbiotic thing
Such a symbiotic thing
It is absolutely cruel and beautiful

Well I walked my boy through the cemetery
Taking pictures in the park
Past graves both fresh and old
And a plot where 'X' had marked the spot
Next day it was dug, yeah the next day it was dog
Life is long and beautiful
Then it's lonely and cold
Oh but you got a long, long, long, long long way to go
Yeah, you got volumes and volumes o show, me
But enough on that for now
Yes, enough on that for now

Honey you got to run
Honey you got to run
Honey you got to run
Honey you got to run
Run, run, run, run, run

We carved our lanes through the rubble
Found our footing in the dark
I'm teaching you, you're learning me
Through the jitters and the sparks
I see lightning in your eyes
And thunder in your heart
I know it's temporary but man, it's so beautiful

We're filling up every home
And we're paving every path
We're tallying the tomes
But I've never been that good at math
Just a passing phase
Oh, ones and oh's and waves
We are temporary but man, it's so beautiful

Honey, you've got to run
Honey, you've got to run
Honey, you've got to run
Honey, you've got to run
Run, run, run, run, run
Honey, you've got to run
Honey, you've got to run
Honey, you've got to run
Run, run, run, run, run
