It's so great to find you here in this place spinning beyond my years.
Your heart's so big it has no home; it's everywhere at once.
That's okay, I'll watch from here, the sky's so big, the night so clear, and as long as life exists, I want it to grow.
Thoughts so big, a mouth so little, you make me feel so forgetful, whatever it is escapes the name, I'm your biggest fan.
And I laughed so hard I cried, felt naked every time, you've driven me so mad I couldn't find my way around cause you're my growing to-do list.
Sometimes we can disagree and I don't see the same things you see and we can let it build between us if we let it stick.
It depends on time of day, we've said what we regret to say, but everything is still okay and oh I still love you.
Maybe we feel small and petty, everything just seems upsetting, we can hang around down here for a little bit.
Our eyes are fun-house mirrors, and our ears don't hear so crystal-clear, everything goes in and comes out the way it came cause you're my growing to-do list. I've been coming to. You're my growing to-do list.
