Mountains & Chandeliers

lyrics

"Lace up your snow boots and grab a map
Or you'll be left uncertainly cold"
That's what they told me when I said
I was unsure of my time spent

Now my restlessness has caught up when I'm lying in bed
And I think to myself, I think to myself
What is it that I want or who do I become?
Because I'm already so far, but so far away

Mountains or chandeliers
We count our years, we build a loft
To keep our thoughts and other views
Out' the coffee

"Bang out your shoes at the door
Leave your clothes on the coat rack, we'll take it from here"
And they made me forget what I went there to do
So I took a rain check and that made two years pass

I wish they weren't so fast
We try to take it one day at a time
But the news reports the weather
And it certainly feels much colder than before

Mountains or chandeliers
We count our years, we build a loft
To keep our thoughts and other views
Out' the coffee

This is an alpine rebellion in a modern victorian
The outbursts arranged, my heartbeat fading
Ooh I don't want to die
Ooh I just want to find
Who's winning, admitting all this shit that I've been doing
Like it's a crime or unnatural, like I shouldn't dwell on my life
And what I want to do with it:
Keep climbing or hang by?

Mountains or chandeliers
We count our years, we build a loft
To keep our thoughts and other views
Out' the coffee

Mountains and chandeliers
Though ironic they may seem
Don't rewind your timepiece,
I guarantee you'll get there
