23

from by Overcoats

about

23 is about feeling trapped in a relationship before you’ve seen the world. It's about realizing the difficult truth that there is a life beyond the walls of your relationship... waiting to be lived.

lyrics

Honey you’re a full time job and I’m tired of rescuing you
Need you to be strong, no I can’t be the only one loving you
He won’t look at himself, in the morning in the mirror as he brushes his teeth
No he won’t look at me anymore, cause he knows who I expect him to be

Forever’s a long time when it doesn’t feel right
And being his wife’s like one long sleepless night
I’m exactly where I said I would be
With my man before 23
And the only truth that I can see
Is he’s the only one who knows how to love me
He’s the only one

Honey would you look what we’ve done
Dug our graves before we had any fun
Back and forth we fight
What difference does it make who’s right?
This is how we spend our days, looking for the love we misplaced
Looking at the choices we’ve made, and how with time they become our chains

Forever’s a long time when it doesn’t feel right
And being his wife’s like one long sleepless night
I’m exactly where I said I would be
With my man before 23
And the only truth that I can see
Is he’s the only one who knows how to love me
He’s the only one

Ah, ah, ah, ah
