Season of Perfection

from by The Luxury

lyrics

Writing a letter to a dear old friend that I never see no more
I start to wonder just how long you can fool a believer for
I’m thinking of the wires we wind, the tracks on the train set
Gathering all the toys in my basement
Leaving you everything before I lost control

‘Cuz I don’t want to pick you up and turn you round facing your reflection
I don’t want to slow you down or pull to ground your aviation
When you’re so high so long, you outlive any intervention
Far be it for anyone to interrupt your season of perfection now

Tell me another, give it all you’ve got while the fire’s hot enough
Tell me another, now you’re ten feet tall, at the top of the wall
I never really left and I’m never leaving, still a mess even off of your list But close your eyes and just keep on dreaming
Kiss the rings that I won’t kiss

‘Cuz I don’t want to pick you up and turn you round facing your reflection
I don’t want to slow you down or pull to ground your aviation
When you’re so high so long, you outlive any intervention
Far be it for anyone to interrupt your season of perfection now

Call the lesson learned, call the cynic silenced
Call the bridges burned, no man an island
Each of us is the sum of our secrets, everything that we break and build Best of friends at the end of the season, where the love outweighs the guilt
