forever i’ve known lyrics – the maccabees

forever i’ve known

i’m a child to your voice
to the sound though it can eat me alive
ten toes and ten fingers
any sense that i’ve had in this life

won’t you stay a while
kill some time
you know that i’ll make it easy

and i know
know it wouldn’t be forever
forever i’ve known
nothing stays forever
couldn’t still try

i want to see you
it’s not good enough to have you here in my head
want the spray from the sea
come on i’ll make it easy

and i know
know it wouldn’t be forever
forever i’ve known
nothing stays forever
couldn’t still try

things i’ve said in a rage
can still be unsaid
took the cold from my bones
took the cold from my head

and i know
know nothing stays forever
forever i’ve known
nothing stays forever
couldn’t just lie

i’m a child to your voice
and i know
know nothing stays forever
forever i’ve known
nothing stays forever
forever i’ve known
