Future Islands - Plastic Beach Lyrics



Spent a lifetime in the mirror
Always afraid of what someone else would say
I wanted to be strong so I took some time to tell you
But you knew from the things I said
Why do you say that babe?
You’re my beautiful
You’re my heart
And you’re beautiful just this way

When I took the time to tell you
You took the time to listen to me too
Now I see, I see today
I see, I see my face

Spent a lifetime in the mirror
Picking apart what I couldn’t change
And I saw my mother, my father, my brother
In my face
In my face

Most the times it was the only thing that kept me going
Other times, just the grip of shame
Oh, you came along and showed me who I am
Wanted means
To be loved
To be one
To be loved
To feel some

I see, I see tomorrow
I see, I see tomorrow
And you’re my beautiful
And you’re beautiful just this way

When I took the time to tell you
You took the time to listen to me too

Now I see, I see tomorrow
I see, I see tomorrow

I spent a lifetime in the mirror
Picking apart what I couldn’t change

I see, I see tomorrow
I see, I see tomorrow
I see, I see tomorrow
I see, I see tomorrow
What you saw today
