lyrics

Once our house was full
and there were people in the rooms,
our parlor floor a beehive,
the neighborhood a womb.
And someone was always an inch from pulling you in.
Oh I can’t think of a time when you were adrift.

When everything went dull, on your side of the wall,
I know your furry animals were whispering alone.
“When did your playmate get so big,
big enough to leave what you two loved?”

But either way…
Someone was always an inch from pulling you in.
Oh, I can’t think of a time when you were adrift.
There were no inches that we could have missed.

Oh my little one, you were the last to come along.
I wish we could have kept it all as colorful as the start.
But please don’t spend your time
thinking nothing matters if it’s gone.

Cause someone was always an inch from pulling you in.
Oh, I can’t think of a time when you were adrift.
There were no inches that we could have missed.

Oh my little one, don’t you ever, ever doubt.
