Lyrics

here's one about nothing in particular
i never did write a ballad for the road
but i know about fleeing the familiar
when it's my time i always go
i will go

maybe the leaving is part of the living
maybe it's all just a trick of time
baby i swear i'll get to know you better
before i move on
into the known unknown
the known unknown

here's one about yesterday's tomorrows
i still battle my blind spot for now
i want to give more than i have borrowed
let it be, let it go, but i don't know how
i don't know how

maybe the mystery is part of the meaning
maybe we shouldn't trust these borderlines
baby i swear i'll get to know you better
before i move on
into the known unknown
the known unknown

here's one about giving up the masterpiece
now that's a good idea, until it's not
here's one about beautiful catastrophes
write it down, write it up, take a snapshot
it's just a snapshot

baby i swear i'll get to know you better
before i move on
into the known unknown
the known unknown
