The Variance – Let's Run lyrics

[Verse:]
I've been building towers
And sandcastles on the beach.
And you're telling me now
That they're not the same
But they sure act the same to me.
'Cause in a matter of time
They'll both have the same fatal flaw
Whether rock or some sand;
Whether hours or years
They're both bound someday to fall.
But the same could be said
About you and me
Because we both know
We have to leave this town eventually.
And as the time draws near
I can't help but write your name in the sand
'Cause if home is where the heart is,
Then home is where I am.

[Pre-Chorus:]
So if all that was true
I'm sure that you'll ask
"Just what the hell's
Keeping you here? "
Then I'll turn to you slow
Plant a kiss on your lips
And whisper:
"That'd be you dear."

[Chorus:]
You're the only reason that I
Haven't left this place
I could jump these castle walls ever since
My 16 year old days.
You're the anchor that keeps me here,
But never holds me down.
And if you wouldn't mind packing
A little bit quicker,
I'd like to get out of this city
Before it drowns

[Verse 2:]
And with every minute
We get a bit further away
Far from worry or rules and so far from our fears
That we both don't know what to say
'Cause I was speechless when I saw you
And I'm speechless here today
And I guess when we're tired of this place
You'll turn to me and say

[Pre-Chorus:]
"So hun I've been thinking
A lot about this;
Just what the hell's
Keeping you here? "
Then I'll turn to you slow
Give you a smile
And whisper:
"Pack your bags, dear."

[Chorus:]
You're the only reason that I
Haven't left this place
I could jump these castle walls ever since
My 16 year old days.
You're the anchor that keeps me here,
But never holds me down.
And if you wouldn't mind packing
A little bit quicker,
I'd like to get out of this city
Before it drowns

(Bridge Part I)
'Cause you're the anchor that keeps me here,
But never holds me down.
You're the anchor that keeps me here,
But never holds me down.

(Bridge Part ii)
So maybe if you're in the mood for it darling,
We can stay here for a while.
And maybe go down to the beach after sunset
And build sandcastles for miles.
-Repeat-

[Chorus:]
You're the only reason that I
Haven't left this place
I could jump these castle walls ever since
My 16 year old days.
You're the anchor that keeps me here,
But never holds me down.
And if you wouldn't mind packing
A little bit quicker,
I'd like to get out of this city
Before it drowns
