You Can't Hug a Photograph

lyrics

they want to know, "where are you going?"
as if i need to be going somewhere
but the years just melt away along with the confidence

im still scared of getting older
but im not holding on to anything
im still scared of getting old
but im not holding on to anything i don't believe in anymore
this is where i want to be, this is where i want to be going
growing older doesn’t mean we can’t be kids anymore

so we tape some cards on our back spokes
we trace the same old maps to follow a nowhere leading road
it's our time
seek shelter under pillows and blankets
safe by the flickering of the tv set
it's our time down here

and they’re asking me, "where are you going?"
as if i need to be going somewhere
but the years melt away along with the confidence
that im doing the right things right now

we can handle responsibility
that’s not what this is about
it’s growing older not growing up
doesn’t mean we can’t be kids anymore

so we tape some cards on our back spokes
we trace the same old maps to follow a nowhere leading road
this is where i want to be, this is not an in between
this is where i want to be going

still scared of getting older
but we’re not holding onto anything
yeah, we’re still scared of dying
but we’re not holding onto anything
this isn’t about getting older
growing old not growing up
