lyrics

[Elizabeth]

I remember this place
I remember that face
It’s a long time since I’ve been in this café

There was a time I thought the world
Went no further than the birch tree
In the back yard
There was a time when I thought broken glass
Was diamonds

Still every chance that I could
I made spaceships out of wood
Anything to take me away

[Elizabeth + harmony]

Oh oh oh

[Elizabeth]

And as I grew I came to see
That I was meant to learn my limits
And live inside them
The edge of town was like a belt
That cinched too tight

And the kids were so cruel
Everyday at school
There was nothing worse to be than me

[Elizabeth + harmony]

So I got away
Oh oh oh

[Elizabeth]

And I never thought I would be back
