lyrics

Building Forts:

I remember building forts
Of blankets in the rooms
Of houses that my parents found
I think back then I thought of you
As lovely like the leaves were falling down

It turns out my thoughts were true
That a season came to go,
And another came around

But I’ve run away from home
I’ve ended up alone
And I tried to fight the world
Chasing dreams and chasing girls

I remember driving through
A south that I had known from birth
To places where I’d only heard
My parents made their start like yours

These were places all torn down
Only love has stayed around

But I tried to lose my youth
I’ve succeeded then refused
And I’ve waited on the dust
To cover up, to cover up

Oh, you know you caught me by surprise
Oh, you know you caught me

And I remember crossing lines of states I used to know
Wondering how the years have changed
These things I used to hold
And I remember crossing borders, bridges in my mind
Oh you know our lives are shaped by things we’ve left behind

And I remember being yours
And I remember you were mine
When you were twenty four
And I was twenty five

Oh, you caught me by surprise
When I was unsuspecting
When I’m scattered you collect me
And I’ve waited for you babe,
I’ve waited for you babe,
I’ve waited for you
