Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness – Built to Last Lyrics

Built to Last Lyrics – Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness

I don’t wanna do this anymore
Don’t think that I can live like this forever
Sleepless nights on the engine roar
Just to wake up in a fight

Maybe when we’re brave we’ll cut the cord
I’ll move south to Argentina
Chase around some ballerina
And you’ll marry a man who treats you right

The more I think it’s less like courage
To run when hopeless days will pass
You’re still everything I wanted
We were built to last

I saw you there on the mezzanine
Freckled cheeks all wisdom teeth and dimples
Crater ends to downturned lip
Landing lights till those latchkey kid’s come home

We were so much younger then
Sometimes I miss the innocence of summer
I see the way you look at me
And wonder if the thoughts you read are mine

Saying I don’t wanna do this anymore
Don’t think that I can live like this forever
Sleepless nights on the engine roar
Just to wake up in a fight

Maybe when we’re brave we’ll cut the cord, yeah
I’ll move south to Argentina
Chase around some ballerina
You’ll marry a man who treats you right

The more I think it’s less like courage
To run when hopeless days will pass
You’re still everything I wanted
We were built to last

You’re still everything I wanted
We were built to last
