The Artichokes – Sweater Weather lyrics

I've been hiding
I've been writing
The same songs in notebooks used to fuel the fires I'm writing

I've been singing
I've been sinking
Between the molecules of drinks that I've been drinking

I've been dreaming
I've been keeping
My secrets safe inside my body while I'm sleeping

She leans in close, starts whispering
I wish I could fly, please lend me your wings

I hate the spring and all it's storms
I think the summer's far too warm
Just give me autumn and a mild winter
I'm talking sweater weather, I long for sweater weather

I've been driving
I've been finding
The folks who mean the most are the ones who won't stop lying

I've been sleeping
I've been piecing
Together pieces of the life that I've been leading

I've been stopped up
I've been locked up
Inside my head with all the things I swore to not touch


For a moment I thought that something was there
Apprehensive, calm-faced by I was so scared
Don't you see this, this is why we can't follow our hearts
I'd never want this, but I've been a strain from the start

Thursday morning and the sun's barely shone
People swarming to tear the meat from my bones
Don't you see this, this is why we can't follow our hearts
I'd never want this but I've been a strain from the start

Who told you love was born in boys arms
Who told you love was born in the backseats of parked cars
Who told you love was measured out in sparks
Who told you love would keep you safe and keep you out of harm?
