AUGUST LYRICS

​​So I’ve been quiet lately 
And it’s all my own fault 
So I’ve been taking a break 
And I don’t want to at all 

‘Cause the time is advancing 
And I’m here slow-dancing 
Feeling it’s all part of the fall 

So I won’t wait and I won’t wonder 
I’ll just chase away the summer 
And if this fire is under water 
How long can it last before it’s out? 

So I’ve been keeping busy 
Like it’s some kind of excuse 
Walking around this city 
Like it’s on the list of things to lose

But the time is advancing 
And I’m still slow-dancing 
Spinning around this empty room 

So I won’t wait and I won’t wonder 
I’ll just chase away the summer 
And if this fire is under water 
How long can it last before it’s out? 

I’ve gotten too good at holding my breath 
I’ve gotten too likely to forget 
And with every word I don’t say, 
This fire gets washed away 

‘cause the time is advancing 
And I’m still slow-dancing 
Hoping it won’t all go to waste 

So I won’t wait and I won’t wonder 
I’ll just chase away the summer 
And if this fire is under water 
If it rains, if it thunders 
If the world’s going under
How long will it last before it’s out?
