They Sat Me Down

lyrics

I thought I saw you
peeking through the window of my room.
I thought I saw you
leaving this behind, cutting loose.

Everybody’s lookin down,
it doesn’t have to be this way.
Every time I find myself running off to hide with you.
I never wanna be like them.
It doesn’t have to stay this way.

I thought I saw you
climbing up the walls of the house.
I thought I saw you
jumping on the treetops in the yard.

Everybody’s lookin down,
it doesn’t have to be so dull.
Every time I find myself running off to hide with you.
I never wanna be like them.
It doesn’t have to stay so dull.

They sat me down and held my hand,
the proper way.
Despite the tiger in my room,
I couldn’t say.

They sat me down and held my hand,
just come with me.
I saw the staleness of it all,
I’d rather be here with you.

I thought I saw you
making patterns in between the clouds.
I thought I saw you
waiting on a castle on the hill.

Everybody’s lookin down,
it doesn’t have to be this way.
Every time I find myself running off to hide with you.
I never wanna be like them.
It doesn’t have to stay this way.
