The Perfect Space Lyrics

by Avett Brothers

I wanna have friends
That I can trust
That love me for the man I've become
Not the man that I was

And I wanna have friends
That let me be
All alone when being alone is all that I need

I wanna fit in
To the perfect space
Feel natural and safe
In a volatile place

And I wanna grow old
Without the pain
Give my body back to the earth
And not complain

[Chorus]
Will you understand
When I am too old of a man
And will you forget
When we have paid our debt
Who did we borrow from,
Who did we borrow from?

Ok, part two
Now clear the house
The party's over
Take the shouting and the people
Get out!
I have some business and a promise
That I have to hold to
I do not care what you assume
Or what the people tell you

[Chorus]
Will you understand
When I am too old of a man
And will you forget
When we have paid our debt
Who did we borrow from,
Who did we borrow from?

I wanna have pride
Like my mother has
And not like the kind in the bible that turns you bad

I wanna have friends
That I can trust
That love me for the man I've become
Not the man that I was
