You are such an old soul
Can’t you see it’s true?
But all this time you spend away
I’d murder every day
If I tried to stay with you

I should know better than to leave
And yet these troublemaking thoughts invade my mind
So we should try and keep me reasonable
Or just hit me where it hurts
Doesn’t matter which comes first

We should know better than to speak
Last time we did it didn’t go so well
We try so hard to understand each other but
We can’t communicate through words
Our emotions in reverse

And you should know better than to ask
Cuz you won’t learn a single thing that you don’t know
And we’ll just carry on ignoring this until
Our four-year bond has been destroyed
And it’s each other we avoid

And we’re a pair of old hands
Old hands, old hearts, and ancient trust
But could it be our day-to-day
Is standing in the way
Of what is best for us?
