"ON THE FENCE" [2014]


I wanna be a good lover

I wanna be a good brother, too

I’ve got the city on my shoulders

I got gum on the bottom of my shoe

I bought a one-way ticket

To hit the road for as long as I can

I wanna be a good tourist

I wanna be a good human bein'

 

Don’t think I meant what I said

(He didn’t mean it, oh)

(He didn’t mean it oh!)

It was a minor offense

(He’s just a minor, oh)

(He’s just a minor oh!)

 

I was there then

Now I’m on the fence

 

I wanna lie here forever

In a field with the sun on my skin

I wanna feel no worries

I wanna live in an English garden

I got a funny little bucket list

To see the world and maybe die young

I got chains tight around my wrists

I might as well try to have a little fun

 

Don’t think I meant what I said

(He didn’t mean it, oh)

(He didn’t mean it oh!)

It was the mind of a kid

(He was just kidding, oh)

(He was just kidding oh!)

 

I was there then

Now I’m on the fence

I was there then

Now I’m on the fence
