about

12/18/17 - wanted another Ukulele song because they're catchy and what not. Wrote song instead of watching Netflix that night. Pretty cool, aye?

lyrics

(Lily: Waking up
Lipstick stained on my coffee cup
Little messes I never clean
Dust caked on the TV
When you're in town
my feet never touch the ground
I'm home)

(John: Photographs
I keep of us in my dorm room
I know I'm heading home soon
for you
Pack the car
turn the key and press the gas
I'm coming home)

2 Takes me back to you
4 This drive is such a bore
6 So we can fix the things that
Miles brought about us
(2x)

(Lily: Sweep the floor
pick up the pieces that weren't
there before... the clock is ticking
on and on
I wish that it'd go faster
I love it when we're home)

(John: Interstate
living in the fast lane
eyes fixed on the bumper
of the car in front of me
it would take a miracle
for him to go faster
help me get home)

2 Takes me back to you
4 This drive is such a bore
6 So we can fix the things that
Miles brought about us
(2x)

(John: Distance is travel)
(Lily: Distance is time)
(Both: put my arms around you,
and you're mine)

2 Takes me back to you
4 This drive is such a bore
6 So we can fix the things that
Miles brought about us
(6x - 2 times normal, then split)
