Line By Line

Album: single release only (2021)
  • There are things that I sing that I'd never have the confidence to say
    There are things I believe that I only figure out when I sit down to play
    The truth don't scare me in a melody, immortalizing my sincerity
    There are things that I sing that I'd never have the confidence to say

    Like that song about my parents that I'll never show 'em
    And the ones about my exes that they don't deserve
    But when it comes to you, I'm still trying to find the words

    Love too big for a love song
    If I tried to sum it up I know I'd get it wrong
    Sometimes if it don't sound right
    I apologize, I just said it 'cause it rhymed
    Four chords, three minutes, you never fit in it
    So I just take you line by line
    Ooh
    I'll be writing about you for the rest of my life
    (Line by line by line by line)
    Line by line

    There are things that I sing that I'll never have the confidence to say
    Like I'm still not convinced that I won't be too much for you someday
    Yeah, we both know the way it goes, hear my fears all on the radio
    There are things that I sing that I'll never have the confidence to say

    Love too big for a love song
    If I tried to sum it up I know I'd get it wrong
    Sometimes if it don't sound right
    I apologize, I just said it 'cause it rhymed
    Four chords, three minutes, you never fit in it
    So I just take you line by line
    Ooh
    I'll be writing about you for the rest of my life
    (Line by line by line by line)
    Line by line
    I'll be writing about you for the rest of my life
    (Line by line by line by line)
    Line by line
    I'll be writing about you for the rest of my life

    I know it's complicated havin' all your shit on display
    I appreciate the way you make it work
    When it comes to you
    I'm still tryna find the words

    Love too big for a love song
    If I tried to sum it up I know I'd get it wrong
    Sometimes if it don't sound right
    I apologize, I just said it 'cause it rhymed
    Four chords, three minutes, you never fit in it
    So I just take you line by line
    Ooh
    I'll be writing about you for the rest of my life
