06. You and I

The Peace of Wild Things
by Paper Route



 

I waited for you
Iím a photograph on your floor
That you found in your bedroom
Now you wish you could ignore
All my desperate words fall
I am the sound of a dead language I know
I waited for you
Iím everything you were before

Iím shooting arrows and I wear your pin
But thereís nothing left here to believe in

So run for your life now
Maybe you wonít you wanna stay here
And live underground
We gotta get out
While the going is good
We gotta turn out the lights
We gotta run for the words

You and I
We live awake at night

Iíve waited for this
Iím the letter you never sent
Iím just a shot at forgiveness
All the words now taken back
In every way I need you
Pull me through every memory you thread
Iíve waited for this
Itís ever wound I wonít forget

You made your move and now itís mine again
Can I give you something to believe in?

So run for your life now
Maybe you wonít you wanna stay here
And live underground
We gotta get out
While the going is good
We gotta turn out the lights
We gotta run for the words

You and I
We live awake at night

Run away run away but donít go
Till youíve heard every word Iíve said
Run away run away but just know
I will be two steps ahead

You and I



Behind the Song:
(JT) Chad started this track but didnít think it could be finished and brought into our world. It still is the most pop thing weíve ever done, but I knew we could connect the dots. (This was also the first track we had started with Robert Marvin. We brought him in knowing it would be the first time Paper Route, as a band, would all be on the -listening couch- .. at the same time). It freed either Chad or me up from being behind the computer. We turned everything up and i had a mic in the tracking room.
