Passing of Time

from Ride EP by Zhao

lyrics

settle down
it’s what you know
and don’t you dare follow that sound
god forbid you might grow

and promise me you’ll never be without
the quieting hand of your own self-doubt
wherever you go

and never look back on what you missed
avert, avert your eyes and never ask
why I held you back from this

running from designs
was all I ever meant
to memorize
the passing of time
I’ve never been hungry for such frivolous ways
til I gazed upon your face

give it up
watch your dreams fade away
give it up, give it up now
they brought you nothin but pain

I can assure you once they’re gone
you’ll believe in the track you’re on,
happily

A steady husband, a beautiful job
rehearse, rehearse the lines until you reap
true emotion from these things

running from designs
was all I ever meant
to memorize
the passing of time
I’ve never been hungry for such frivolous ways
til I gazed upon your face
