Governing Dynamics - To A Stubborn Young Man In The Year 1998 (red mix)

lyrics

Time travel is a tricky sort of anxious hell
Trying not to make the universe fold in on itself
So I would really love to save you some heartache
But you and I know you make your own mistakes

At fifteen you know everything like most teenagers in time
So I know a futile fight but I guess I should still try

Don’t waste all your time trying to be perfect
But even so, know good enough
Isn’t always good enough
You should try a little harder
The world does not revolve around you

Happiness is mostly temporary circumstance
And you never will shake off your curse for games of chance
But you will find your love a little later than you’d hoped
Stick with the music In the meantime it helps you cope
She’ll save your life and you’ll start to resemble
Who you were always trying to be

And of course you’re going to make a few mistakes
But I’ll leave it how it happened because I think that’s what it takes

Don’t waste all your time trying to be perfect
But even so, know good enough
Isn’t always good enough
You should try a little harder
The world does not revolve around you
