mighty shove

lyrics

i walk with a strut, i walk with a stride, unreachable
said you better shut up, just hold that inside

i live my life in a hurry, but don’t you worry
i can hold my breath in every sense
people say i’m a fast talker, a strong walker
but don’t negotiate with love cause
you’ll always overbid and kids,
it’s a mighty, mighty shove

i don’t lose my breath
to smoky regret
i haven’t learned it all yet

stomach sucked tucked under my ribs
i know how to howl and its louder than this
this is where i’m weak when push comes to shove
i made the ocean leak and i floated above

i don’t lose my breath
to smoky regret
i haven’t learned it all yet

we’re a lesson learned yet forgotten and burned
when will we learn, when will we learn
our demons and dreams held by single seams
and finally
we were brave enough to leave

i don’t lose my breath
to smoky regret
i haven’t learned it all yet
