Lyrics

Juliette:
Sometimes good intentions don't come across so well
Get me analyzing everything that aint’ worth thinking 'bout

Just cause I ain’t lived through
The same hand that was dealt to you
Doesn't make me any less
Or make any more of you

I wouldn't trade my best day
So you could validate all your fears
And if I've only got one shot
Won't waste it on a shadowbox
I'd stand right here

It's all

Juliette and Deacon:
Talk, talk, talk,
Talking in the wind
It only slows you down if you start listening
And it's a whole lot harder to shine

Juliette:
Than undermine

Yeah undermine

Juliette and Deacon:
First mile is always harder
When you're leaving what you know
Won't blame you if you stay here
Waving to me as I go

Always wished the best for you
Thought that you could see me through

Juliette:
My wildest dreams

Juliette and Deacon:
Yeah, the ones you thought I'd never make

Juliette with Deacon harmonizing:
Still you would trade your best day
Just to have your way
All these years
And if you only had one shot
Maybe all this talk
Would disappear

Juliette:
It's all Juliette and Deacon:
talk, talk, talk,
Talking in the wind
It only slows you down if you start listening
And it's a whole lot harder to shine

Juliette:
Than undermine

Yeah undermine

Juliette with Deacon harmonizing:
It's a whole lot harder to shine
Yeah it's a whole lot harder to shine

Juliette:
Than undermine

Yeah undermine

Sometimes, good intentions,
Don't come across so well...
