lyrics

LYRICS:
We had a good life
We had a car and a green backyard
Where the neighbor's cat would hop the fence to come visit
We had a nice time
We always laughed at the same exact things
And catching your eye in those moments was exquisite

But I had the strangest desire to give it all, give it all up

Cuz it got stale, it sat on the counter too long
We let it get stale, and then it was time to move along
Sometimes it gets stale, and nobody's in the wrong
Sometimes you need, sometimes you need
Sometimes you need, sometimes you need
Oh sometimes, you need a breath of fresh air

I had a good job, for the first time in my life
When a new month rolled around I didn't hesitate to mail my rent
I was a rock star
When someone asked me “what do you do”
I could finally answer feeling confident

But I had the strangest desire to give it all, give it all up

Cuz it got stale, it sat on the counter too long
We let it get stale, and then it was time to move along
Sometimes it gets stale, and nobody's in the wrong
Sometimes you need, sometimes you need
Sometimes you need, sometimes you need
Oh sometimes, you need a breath of fresh air

I'm so grateful for the good things that I've had
And if I'd stayed forever, it wouldn't be so bad
But I know passion when I feel it, I know when I don't
And I know I won't if nothing changes
If nothing changes

It'll get stale, sit on the counter too long
We let it get stale, and it'll be time to move along
Sometimes it gets stale, and nobody's in the wrong
Sometimes you need, sometimes you need
Sometimes you need, sometimes you need
Oh sometimes, you need a breath of fresh air
