lyrics

Almost as cute as you used to be
almost as nice as they think you are
almost arrived when we said we would
almost followed through on the things we knew we could

it’s getting dark
I’m almost old
your hand’s too hot
my heart’s not cold enough to start
to begin to figure out another line
yeah, this story’s getting much too messy now

I need an editor
you need a map
I need someone to trust me when I say
that I know when it’s time to stop

but I’m not ready yet
unless you wanna make a bet
no, I’m not ready yet
unless you wanna make a bet
unless you wanna

almost as cute as you used to be
almost as nice as they think you are
almost arrived when we said we would
almost followed through on the things we knew we could

it’s getting dark
I’m almost old
your hand’s too hot
my heart’s not cold enough to start
to begin to figure out another line
yeah, this story’s getting much too messy now

I need an editor
you need a map
I need someone to trust me when I say
that I know when it’s time to stop

but I’m not ready yet
unless you wanna make a bet
no, I’m not ready yet
unless you wanna make a bet

Good luck, my darlin’
good night, good night
good luck, my darlin’
good night, good night
