Sail up the sun and keep your chin held high
And if you ever lose your breath then you can inhale mine
And when the day comes just don’t leave
Tomorrow’s gonna bring us what we both need

Everyone who knows me thinks that I’m so put together
Like no matter what my years will bring me, I’ll be good forever
Looking back on my path, I probably could have took it better
We wished the world away in hoodie weather
We shouldn’t have
Our chapped hearts, my Blistex, and the repairment that I showed you
Your big steps after your summer airing out in Arizona
We both needed fixing, we both needed time
A suicide attempt later you still had me on your mind
We laid in bed and wished this life away, right away
The road was rough, we never had the right of way, alright you say
You made your peace in rehab, I made my peace through writing ways
Here’s a piece of everything I wish that I could say
Because I don’t understand a single thing about this life sometimes
But I’m gonna fucking find a way
Knowing that my time is not today
Because I know my time is not today
I said I know our time is not today
And so I looked at her and told her

"Sail up the sun and keep your chin held high
And if you ever lose your breath then you can inhale mine
And when the day comes just don’t leave
Tomorrow’s gonna bring us what we both need
Sail up the sun and keep your chin held high
And if you ever lose your breath then you can inhale mine
And when the day comes just don’t leave
Tomorrow’s gonna bring us what we both need”

So if we dig our own graves by the time we’re twenty two
Then we’ll both finally see we’ve got a ton to lose
Whether it’s love or it’s life or it’s a shitty situation
Or it’s perfect or it’s heaven or it’s hell on different stations
Or it’s me or you chasing your little sisters in the snow
I think everyone’s allowed to have a blister on their soul
If it wasn’t this, it would be something much worse
Old souls who never had a fighting chance to be young first
I’ve had enough of this
If love exists
I want to pack it up and quit
This city, leave this city for the fun of it
Find a place where we can see the stars at night, count the constellations
And be happy by the seasons if we get to watch them changing
Plot ourselves a private fort by the sea
Our own flagship location where I store my dreams
And we can be safe from life, that’s simply all I need
To build something that can last a little longer than me
And I told her

"Sail up the sun and keep your chin held high
And if you ever lose your breath then you can inhale mine
And when the day comes just don’t leave
Tomorrow’s gonna bring us what we both need
Sail up the sun and keep your chin held high
And if you ever lose your breath then you can inhale mine
And when the day comes just don’t leave
Tomorrow’s gonna bring us what we both need”

Sail up the sun and keep your chin held high
And if you ever lose your breath then you can inhale mine
And when the day comes just don’t leave
Tomorrow’s gonna bring us what we both need

Sail up the sun and keep your chin held high
And if you ever lose your breath then you can inhale mine
And when the day comes just don’t leave
Tomorrow’s gonna bring us what we both need

Sail up the sun and keep your chin held high
And if you ever lose your breath then you can inhale mine
And when the day comes just don’t leave
Tomorrow’s gonna bring us what we both need

Sail up the sun.
