The Thing About This

Let's not make a thing about this
Don't know where I will be next year
It's not like I think about it
Not like your voice is in my ears
Maybe it's better this way
I've been lost and I've been gone and you've been afraid
Except the lightning out the window in the sky
Underlines your eyes as they swim up into mine

And it's time
It's all about timing
It's time
And what's on your mind

Let's not make a thing about this
It's only the summer wind creeping in
Making our bones feel lighter
Dizzy on each other like the air is too thin
What about when the leaves change
When you pack your apartment and you drive away
Will you still get out of the car and say goodbye
With a kiss and a smile like it's going out of style

And it's time
It's all about timing
It's time
And what's on your mind

Let's not make a thing about this
Because tomorrow I might forget how to breathe
Drowning in the distance which isn't between us
Your voice in my ear feel like I hear the sea
And if it gets cold
Or if i lose my nerve to be bold
I hope you never know
That our green horizons never vanish in the snow

And it's time
It's all about timing
It's time
And what's on your mind
