lyrics

I heard you spent some time out in the mountains of the west
and ancient cities in the south helped you get me off your chest
and i heard you found a job waiting tables in Belize
i'm not sure why you'd quite, i can't say what made you leave
but now you hear all the same interests from every single guy you meet
and everyone wants kids and drinks their whisky neat
but anything is better if it's the opposite of me
i ain't saying you were wrong, i'm just saying it was

easier than waking up in love, but never sure that's what you want
always wondering if i'm keeping you from something
and knowing what it's like to be the best and having lost your audience
makes you a little deviant
and it's something you forgot to keep discrete
so now i'm packing up your things
to move across the country
three thousand miles away, i'm not asking you to stay
i'm just saying it'd be easy

i heard that where you went seemed like the party never stopped
everyone was in the moment, but you never felt more lost
than when you were walking down that aisle
in a dress your mom picked out
on a perfect autumn day, you wished you hadn't been around
and someday when you're sitting with your toes dug in the sand
you'll think back for just a minute and you'll wonder how i am
and honestly i hope that you found everything you need
i ain't saying you were wrong, i'm just saying it was

easier than waking up in love, but never sure that's what you want
always wondering if i'm keeping you from something
and knowing what it's like to be the best and having lost your audience
makes you a little deviant
and it's something you forgot to keep discrete
so now i'm packing up your things
to move across the country
three thousand miles away, i'm not asking you to stay
i'm just saying it'd be easy
