And it starts like this, we crave to be kissed
By a moment complete in its happiness
Far away from the things that we wish to escape
That lead us to think that we are not awake

We are ourselves despite ourselves
This place gets smaller as the universe swells
We come to terms eventually
Eventually, eventually

I am not the only cowboy
In this one horse metaphor
And I am not the only life guard
Who's washed up on the shore

Wake me up, take me out
Calm me down when I'm in doubt
And I'm in doubt
Everyday

Words are like weight with density and shape
Modifying forms they evaporate
You can choose the truth, you can listen to light
You can lead the charge and still loose the fight

Far be it for me to claim anything
For I am just one in a state of being
I come to terms eventually
Eventually, eventually

I am not the only proverb
That never really fits
And I am not the only Caulfield
Who's catching more than kids

Wake me up, take me out
Calm me down when I'm in doubt
And I'm in doubt

And so it ends as it begins
As everything that is infinite ascends
Into its time all things pass
All things fade, all things last

You are yourself despite yourself
This world grows smaller as the universe swells
We come to terms eventually
Eventually, eventually

And I am not the only boxer
That hasn't words to write
And I am not the only poet
Who's much too scared to fight

Wake me up, take me out
Calm me down when I'm in doubt
And I'm in doubt
Everyday

And it starts like this, we crave to be kissed
By a moment complete in its happiness
We are ourselves eventually
Eventually, eventually

I am not the only cowboy
In this one horse metaphor
