People As Places As People Submit Correct Lyrics

To answer a question, it'll probably take more
If you're already there, well, you probably don't know
Well, we were the people that we wanted to know
And we're the places that we wanted to go

It's hard to get hold of and hard to let go
Always something we look for from the day we were born
Instead we're the people that we wanted to know
And we're the places that we wanted to go

Yeah, we're the places that we wanted to go
Yeah, we're the places that we wanted to go

Always asking a question and I don't want to know
Like the wind across strings that had finally let go
And the people you love but you didn't quite know
They're the places that you wanted to go

Bark at the neighbors and then bark at the dog
Sniffing the wind, whimpering for someone to know
But we were the people that we wanted to know
And we're the places that we wanted to go

Yeah, we're the places that we wanted to go
Yeah, we're the places that we wanted to go

It was not the intention, but we let it all go
Well, it messed up the function and sure fucked up the flow
I hardly have people that I needed to know
'Cause you're the people that I wanted to know

All this scrambling around, hunting high and then low
Looking for the face love or somewhere to go
I hardly have places that I need to go
'Cause you're the places that I wanted to go

Yeah, you're the places that we wanted to go
Yeah, you're the places that we wanted to go

You're the people that we wanted to know
Shouldn't have to ask, you shouldn't have to ask
'Cause we are your real place
You shouldn't
