lyrics

A flock of leaves burst from a tree
like the thoughts up in my mind
Burnt Sienna memories
of the moments that have gone by

We're not perfect or broken,
but in between.
It's the state of all our lives
and I don't regret a minute of my time.

The seasons join us for a drink
buy a round while they're in town.
They talk of snow and foliage
and the secrets that they've found, saying

"We're not perfect or broken,
but in between.
It's the state of all our lives
so don't regret a minute of your time."

Let's put to the use the lessons that we've learned.
The profound and simple things

Like don't pack away your "what if"s"
like a junk drawer on moving day.
They're the clutter that doesn't serve you well
but you take them with you anyway.

'Cause we're not perfect or broken,
but in between.
It's the state of all our lives
So let's not regret a minute of our time.

We're not perfect or broken,
but in between.
It's the state of all our lives
So let's not regret a minute
Yeah, I don't regret a minute
Let's not regret a minute of our time.
