Time Told Me

I just had the epiphany

That if I’ve ever had to ask if she’s into me

She act indifferently

And I repeat myself like I’m history

I moved last month from the northwest to LA

To take different advice from different people every day

and write songs every day, most of which are painful

With this brain full of ideas I think are great, they ain’t tho

I store them in posts in the notes of my payphone

And let that shit sit for years until I say so

And lately I want in with the new, not the same old

So I poured them all into a verse, called it a day hold on

I said I’d stay home but I’m not stable tonight

It might be a problem but one that I’m able to fight

I get by by remembering I’ve

Never met a better teacher than time

 

Time told me

Everything I didn’t want to know

When I was lonely (oh so lonely)

I’m gon’ be

There for me when my friends won’t

He told me slowly

 

There’s something I’ve been thinking I should say

It’s something that I’ve known from the start

Baby, everything I touch breaks

And you just let me touch your heart, okay

Let’s talk love, like, why do we chase it?

Why do we pay for dates just to make it

And hate where it takes us and break up so we can escape it

Like, I used to want love now I just want her naked

‘Cause the ones I always want, they always leave me feeling jaded

Like these numbers on the Tok, they always seem to be inflated

Like I’m writing all these verses

No one’s ever even heard them

And by no one I mean you ‘cause nobody is perfect

That last line was cute, this one’s for the person

Looking at me do my thing but just to get assertive

Saying I act a fool - but I could never feel stupid

Looking at all the room that I’ve got for improvement

 

Time told me

Everything I didn’t want to know

When I was lonely (oh so lonely)

I’m gon’ be

There for me when my friends won’t

He told me slowly

 

Time told me

Know

Oh so lonely

I’m gon’ be

Won’t
