The Shadowboxers – FLOAT ON BY lyrics


It’s good to be a lover
It hurts to be loved
It hurts to be a story

It’s good to stay open
But then you’re exposed
To all of this closing

So I could say I love you
And you could say it back
And we could both mean it

Isn’t it heavy
That one of these days
It could just be part of our routine?


It’s body and soul
It’s yes and it’s no
So I’m letting it go
Cause everyone knows
That nobody knows
So I’m letting it go


If I could just hang up
And start again
I’d fuck up all the same shit

Cause life it’s like a puzzle
That you gotta solve
Without all of the pieces

You could actually be an astronaut
Looking back at earth
Thinking how did I not see this

Or you could be in LA
Staring at your bills
Wearing a brand new t-shirt


It comes and it goes
It’s hot and it’s cold
So I’m letting it go
Cause everyone knows
That nobody knows
So I’m letting it go

And I’ll just float on by
Yeah I’ll just float on by


So I try to stop the future
From leaning on the past
But it never really works for me

The longer that you’re something
The more you forget
That isn’t what you have to be

I mean you could be an analyst
Of analysis
You could be mad at your computer

Or you could just steal something
And turn up all the noise
And pass it off as something newer


It’s body and soul
It’s yes and it’s no
So I’m letting it go
Cause everyone knows
That nobody knows
So I’m letting it go

And I’ll just float on by
Yeah I’ll just float on by

I’m letting it go
Stay up
