lyrics

When I feel all away,
I go to my past love.
She says she likes my new haircut—
it makes me look older.

When I felt too close,
I decided to run away.
The safest thing I could’ve done
was return to your face.

And now it’s time
to pack up, hit the road.
But I don’t want to leave.

Now I keep you a secret
like a basket of rotting fruit.
Your name on my tongue
was too sweet for my taste.

When I felt your hand,
I withdrew again.
It was all I'd learned to do.
(I learned it from you.)

And now it’s time
to pack up, hit the road.
But I don’t want to leave.

This is your history book.
I’ve changed all the dates.
I made you the hero
‘cause, yeah, I needed that, too.

I stayed at your new place
(the one with the pretty curtains).
The light flowed in like soft rain.
I left before it took me, too.

And now it’s time
to pack up, hit the road.
But I never wanted to leave.
