The Moments I'm Missing

Album: The Sun Will Come Up, the Seasons Will Change (2017)
  • These are the moments I'm missing
    These are the moments I'm missing

    I had a dream
    I had a dream when I was only five
    To work at a bar, I wanted to see over the other side
    And I had a friend, her name was Fern and she had a blue bike
    So we'd ride through the streets
    And I would sleep over on Saturday nights

    Then I went to school
    My family moved to a village near by
    At thirteen years old I started drawing black under my eyes
    'Cause I met a boy, first time I kissed him on the lip was the last
    'Cause I got afraid when everyone there started moving too fast

    These are the moments I'm missing
    These are the moments I never took in when
    I was just standing there wishing
    I could grow up and my life would be different
    These are the moments I miss
    These are the moments
    These are the moments I'm missing
    These are the moments

    'Cause I've been so caught in the motion
    Forgetting right where my home is
    oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    These are the moments I'm missing

    In the back of her mum's car on the way to the old bars, yeah
    Raising my anxiety using her sisters ID, yeah
    In a skintight short skirt, sixteen and we danced till our feet hurt
    But I had a dream, I had a goal
    Got a guitar and a camera phone

    Then over the time, I started racking up numbers online
    At the end of July I met somebody who changed my life
    And then I'm signed and falling in love for the very first time
    But that fucked me up, so then I had issues with falling in love

    These are the moments I'm missing
    These are the moments I never took in when
    I was just standing there wishing
    I could grow up and my life would be different
    These are the moments I miss
    These are the moments
    These are the moments I'm missing
    These are the moments

    'Cause I've been so caught in the motion
    Forgetting right where my home is
    oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    These are the moments I'm missing

    Gone in the snow,
    nothing there for me, I had to let go
    found the world on my own
    Wondering, looking for where to call home
    With the beat of a guitar and a bunch of flowers to endlessly roam
    Never did have a car, but I got a few friends to help me along
    Then I met a few girls in the City of Angels
    Thought they all were the one, but they all ran away, so
    I've been writing these songs
    all about loving, about finding home
    I'm alone, I don't know where to go, all I know is

    These are the moments I'm missing (yeah)

    'Cause I've been so caught in the motions
    Forgotten right where my home is
    oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    These are the moments I'm missing

    'Cause I've been so caught in the motions
    Forgotten where my home is
    oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh

    These are the moments I'm missing
    These are the moments I'm missing
    These are the moments I'm missing
    These are the moments I'm missing
    These are the moments I'm missing
    These are the moments I'm missing
    These are the moments I'm missing
    These are the moments I'm missing
