lyrics

Gather all of our notes together, left on Post-its around our home,
An epistolary, called Love in the Mundane

In a series of purloined glances from the top of the page I'm pretending
to read I catch you smiling to yourself.

Remember that:
All the love that you take is borrowed and won't be yours to break
As long as there's someone who can make it go away

Pretend that we are all old and scrawny, like we were both drawn by Quentin Blake,
The shoes on our bedroom floor are dancing a waltz .

The autumn days we spent kicking acorns, the summer we spent indoors,
All the steps of our weekend dance, our attempts at romance

Remember that:
All the love that you take is borrowed and won't be yours to break
As long as there's someone who can make it go away

You kick the crutch from 'neath crippled heart
And all stupid things that we said at start
We're only disguise the words that we didn't know

All of the sentimental ruse you learned but but never get to use,
You said you don't know who to blame but love in the mundane.

There's no fall from high trapeze, and there's no begging on bended knees,
Just two sets of skin that feel the same in love in the mundane
