Ben Kweller — In Other Words lyrics

Another night slips away
In other words I should say
There are no words he should say
There are no words

In his eyes I see the fear
That only time could disappear
If only time could re-appear
Now's the time

Somethin' to take it away to take it away to take it
Don't let it stay don't let it stay don't let it

The butterflies are passive aggressive
And put their problems on the shelf but they're beautiful
And he'll realize the only thing that's real are the kids that kid themselves
And the demise of the beautiful
What is beautiful?

The multi-life is better than
The one we're in the one we knew
Cause everyone is seein' through everyone

They're steppin' on
His gold terrain
He's movin' on with bold refrain
His blatently old campaign
Is movin' on

Somethin' to take it away to take it away to take it
Don't let it stay don't let it stay don't let it

The butterflies are passive aggressive
And put their problems on the shelf but they're beautiful
He'll realize the only thing that's real are the kids that kid themselves
And the demise of the beautiful
What is beautiful?

What can't stay goes away

It starts stopping when it stops stopping
