lyrics

The world is so big, but you'd lose it in the sky
If it weren't on a map and tied down on a line
And I won't tire of being a part time philosopher
Because it keeps you entertained while I'm sitting deep in wonder

I'm pulling on my shoes and tugging at your sleeve
Hoping it will never tear while I'm taking you around with me
Smiling at the camera that we haven't put away in years
It frames us in the future and shows our kids how the past had got us here

I could not wait to get you out of my mind, out of my mind
I can't wait to get you out of my mind and into my heart
Whoa, Whoa

We're always talking a big game, and maybe careless with our dreams
But really deep inside, all I want is for you to share with me
A steaming cup of coffee when the sun spreads through the sky
If this were the last thing I ever did, I would want you by my side

Could not wait to get you out of my mind, out of my mind
I can't wait to get you out of my mind and into my heart
Whoa, Whoa

Everything you've ever said is still buried deep inside my head
You have made me smile from ear to ear; you've made me cry some bitter tears
But the one thing I don't want to fear
Is losing my sense of wonder...

Now pretend we're really old and I cannot spin in circles
So the dance we do to music is you holding me so gentle
And I won't tire of being a part time philosopher
Because it keeps us looking forward, sitting deep in wonder

Could not wait to get you out of my mind, out of my mind
I can't wait to get you out of my mind and into my heart
Whoa, Whoa
