lyrics

I know you're drifting back into your head
to how she kept her books beside your bed
and kissed you slowly through the afternoon
but that was back when she adored you

I’ve seen the purple mountain’s majesty
witnessed a lover turn away from me
felt the cold clasp of winter
yet still the moon it shines without her

you found love but now you’re on your own
you want it to be futureproof
you can save a picture on your phone
but you can’t save your fleeting youth
futureproof
futureproof

the road is sprawling out in front of you
you wanna do just what you wanna do
so rip a page from Kerouac
and make a promise not to circle back

you found love but now you’re on your own
you want it to be futureproof
you can save a picture on your phone
but you can’t save your fleeting youth
futureproof
futureproof

oh no you’re holding onto something
that wasn’t what you thought it was
over it’s over now
