Looking for something I've never seen
Alone and I'm in between
The place that I'm from and
The place that I'm in
A city I've never been
I found a friend or should I say foe
Said there's a few things you should know
We don't want you to see
We come and we go
Here today, gone tomorrow

Were only taking turns
Holding this world
It's how it's always been
When you're older, you will understand

If I say who I know it just goes to show
You need me less than I need you
Take it from me
We don't give sympathy
You can trust me trust nobody
But I said you and me
We don't have honesty
The things we don't want to speak
I'll try to get out but I never will
Traffic is perfectly still

Were only taking turns
Holding this world
It's how it's always been
When you're older you will understand

And again maybe you don't
And again maybe you won't

(We're only taking turns)
We're only taking turns
Holding this world
It's how it's always been
When you're older you will understand

When you're older
You might understand
When you're older
You might understand

    Lol on the comment by tassan. I really wish that they would stop putting out songs that describe my life. (JK, JK) This song almost perfectly describes my relationship with my dad, only from his perspective talking to me. I love it to death and it's one of my song addictions.
