Lyrics


Universe To Keep
(Polly Edwards)

Don’t waste a minute, always be willing to break your heart, and never assume the best times of life are behind you.

The end of high school, one more party on the beach
Every constellation hanging still in reach
Last night of summer, then we start the rest of life
Every single thread of fate still begging for the knife
We sing along to Elton John like we did when we were ten
We dance until the sun comes up and then

Polly

It’s over, we’ve gotta move on
But it’s worth it, that one last song
We’ve only got so many nights to stay awake
And guard our right to heartbreak
So don’t you dare go to sleep
We’ve got a universe to keep

Right now, there’s spotlights shining on my voice downtown
In twenty minutes, I'll find you backstage hanging around
In seven hours, you’ll be on a Greyhound bus
But right now, that doesn’t matter to either one of us
We kiss behind the old school barn like we did when we were ten
We kiss until the sun comes up and then

It’s over, we’ve gotta move on
But it’s worth it, this not being alone
We’ve only got so many nights to stay awake
And guard our right to heartbreak
So don’t you dare go to sleep
We’ve got a universe to keep

For sixty years, we’ll keep our souls in airline packs
When we’re finished, maybe we could both come back
I’ll forget your face, and you’ll forget my name
But in our parents’ nursing home, we’ll meet up just the same
We’ll make a fortress out of cushions like we did when we were ten
We’ll laugh until the sun comes up and then

It’s over, we’ve gotta move on
But it was all worth it, for this coming home
Because we had so many nights to stay awake
And guard our right to heartbreak
So let’s hold hands and go to sleep
And give ourselves to the universe to keep
