Little Life

lyrics

You and I made this moment
Stacked it high on the apex
Of the ones that came before it

A little to the left, a little more, that’s just right
Step back, admire the work we’ve done
Your hand brushes mine, a little thrill spills steady
Across my face into a smile

You and I made this moment
Stacked it high on the apex
Of the ones that came before it
We made a little life out of it

Out of the corner of my eye, you in the next room
Low light, working the rhythm in your head
The waves pulsing these four walls and my body
I always wished for this content

You and I made this moment
Stacked it high on the apex
Of the ones that came before it
We made a little life out of it
Made our little life out of it

Holding on to each other, hanging on for dear life
Braced against the piercing winds of youth
Wholly unprepared for what would be required
You believed in me and I in you
