Today's song comes from Tigers Jaw again (sorry, I've been listening to them all week) and it's for all the people who've had a partner who is in love with leaving you. And I know this song is really a metaphorical "leaving" instead of a physical. But I took this one to heart because I've been in a relationship where my partner was constantly looking for new places to go/see.
And not that that's a problem or anything. But it's really hard to keep things intimate and alive when you don't know when they're going to leave and go to a place that's miles away from you. I'm not the type of person who likes to move a lot, so when I dated someone who was in love with seeing new places, it was hard for me to feel like they wanted something more concrete. I worried that nothing would ever be good enough for them.
They would get bored of a place after a certain amount of time and I would get scared that my time was running out. And eventually, like everything in my life, I was another boring city on their roadtrip. I was a bed for a metaphorical night. A port in this person's storm of wanderlust. But even though they would leave on a consistent basis, they still wanted to be in a relationship with me even though it was long distance. And that I felt like I was being tugged along towards a disaster I couldn't avoid.
So, if you find yourself in the sights of someone you're head over heels for but they're more in love with new experiences than actual people, you should listen to Frame You until you get over them.
If I could frame you, it would be the only way to keep you in once place but I couldn't blame you for running away. You say, "We'll be alone someday", this is directly from every conversation that we should've had. But don't tell me, don't tell me.
I am your childhood home. Empty like the words you said. But you couldn't leave me alone because I was a wreck and you were the savior type.
