lyrics

i don't want to know what happens next
because your words are just the best
and you always know just what to say

and if i'd been in my head just thinking
where i might be headed
i know i'd have missed your sentiments
for days

cos the past and the future
got together and conspired
knowing now was their time to run away

because there's nothing like the present
and i promise to be present
cos i know its always better this way

and i had to keep a timeline on the palms of my hands
so i'd never forget our times together
but i'm filling in the blanks
between the spelling mistakes
cos i know someday these hands will start to wither

i've always been a child
and we have always acted wild
but know that this won't stop until our hairs turn white as snow

and though the seasons change
and we can't help but age a little
we can take eachother with us where we want to go

in our minds and hearts
we have the planets and the stars
and a solar system made of people we adore

and each trip around the sun
we all just tag along for fun
and cross our fingers it'll be like this forever more

and i had to keep a timeline on the palms of my hands
so i'd never forget our times together
but i'm filling in the blanks
between the spelling mistakes
cos i know someday these hands will start to wither

don't keep anything that you posses
except for the mementos in your head
