Rex Orange County

The great protector
Is that what I'm supposed to be
What if all this counts for nothing

Everything I thought I'd be
What if by the time I realize
It's too far behind to see
70 mil projector
I can show you everything, yeah
And we're on our way to glory
Where the show won't ever end
And the encore lasts forever
And there's time with you to spend

Spending the years together
Growing older every day
I feel at home when I'm around you
And I'll gladly say again

I hope the encore lasts forever
Now there's time for us to spend
And it's sublime with you my friend
This right here still feels like the honeymoon
When you say my name
Nothing's changed
I'm still a boy inside my thoughts
Am I man to understand my faults

I don't think so
I don't think I'm meant to understand myself
Maybe you do
And that's good for you
Maybe in time
Maybe one day
I'll do the same

I'll do the same
I'll do the same
I'll do the same

I'll do the same as you
I'll try and hold it up
Soon I hope
Or as soon as I'm old enough

Old enough to understand

Old enough to understand

Stay forever
You know more than anyone (yeah, woah)
And it's you that knows my darkness
And you know my bedroom needs
You could blast me and my secrets
Because there's probably just no need
