"A day without laughter is a day wasted" -Charlie Chaplin


I feel like things have changed
Between us
Nothing’s the same
Between us
All I want is for it to go back to where we started
When we were just us
And we could just be

There’s so much stress
Between us
No sense of rest
Between us
Constantly moving around, keeping busy all the time
That we just can’t be
How we used to be

I want the madness gone
Between us
It feels so wrong
Between us
We hold more than we can carry and still expect that
We can just be
How we used to be

The world needs to slow down
Between us
There needs to be no ground
Between us
So we can be free
And so as we please
So we can be
How we used to be
