Song Story

Lyrics

Downtown roof
I can see two folding chairs
Escaping from the world up there
We are tracing constellations
Glow of the city lights
Below us in the summer night
And you’re saying it will be alright
And I’m starting to believe you

We carve out these spaces
Nothing left to give
Our finest moments
In the places we can’t live

Four person booth
I’m holding your hands while we wait
For a burger, beers and two sharing plates
Making plans across the evening
Blues on the Bose
Under table touching toes
Worrying about the kids back home
I guess this is how we push on through

We carve out these spaces
Nothing left to give
Our finest moments
In the places we can’t live
Places we can’t live

I picture your face
While the scenery keeps changing
And I’m in a place
Where the busy world is fading

We carve out these spaces
Nothing left to give
Spending our finest moments
In the places we can’t live

Places we can’t live
