LyricsEdit

Sky Ferreira's versionEdit

[Verse 1]:
Why can't we speak another language?
One we all agree on.
Why when men look outside?
Do they see houses?
Instead of the field we'd move on.
We are constantly uprooted from,
Making stars so fearful.
Can't you get up right now,
Endeavor to freefall.

[Hook]:
You can fall if you want to,
It's just a matter of how far.
You've treasured your home town,
But you've forgotten where you are.
And it will stay with you,
'Til you're mind's been found.
And it has been found wandering around.

[Chorus]:
With our skipping rope, the trampoline,
The crafty smoke that made us choke.
But we didn't give up hope.
The simple ways, of getting paid,
The carelessness of running away.
I wish I stayed.
I wish I stayed.
I wish I stayed.

[Verse 2]:
Patterns all arranged in my background,
Posts keeping us in form.
Letters were all sent with no addresses,
So people can't discover.
Why am I always trying to find something instead,
Speaking words you so deserve.

[Bridge]:
I don't own my clothes but I own my mind.
It's not what you've lost,
But it's what you find.
I don't own my clothes but I own my mind.
It's not what you've lost,
But it's what you've find.

[Chorus]:
With our skipping rope, the trampoline,
The crafty smoke that made us choke.
But we didn't give up hope.
The simple ways, of getting paid,
The carelessness of running away.
I wish I stayed.
I wish I stayed.
I wish I stayed.

[Hook]:
You can fall if you want to,
It's just a matter of how far.
You've treasured your home town,
But you've forgotten where you are.
And it will stay with you,
'Til you're mind's been found.
And it has been found wandering around.

[Chorus]:
With our skipping rope, the trampoline,
The crafty smoke that made us choke.
But we didn't give up hope.
The simple ways, of getting paid,
The carelessness of running away.
I wish I stayed.
I wish I stayed.
I wish I stayed.
