Mariposa
Peach Tree Rascals Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I can't wait for you to come my way
I've been far away
But I'll keep runnin'
Just to find a way to you 'til then

I've been running from it
Tired of running from it
Scared of feeling something
Now I'm stuck and tryin' to get up out of this hole
I've tried to be strong
I tried to make it work but I've been feeling too numb
Skies are bleeding on me
Why'd you leave me lonely?
Feeling Whitney, Stoney
Now I'm stuck and wonder where I ever went wrong
How could I be strong?
I'm fighting for your love

I can't wait for you to come my way
I've been far away
But I'll keep runnin'
Just to find a way to you 'til then

I don't see light in your love anymore
There ain't no reason to call in a fall
I don't like feelings or feeling like running
From something and feeling so out of control
I know that the feelings are gone
I'm spending too much time alone
I'm hopin' you pick up the phone
And ring me when you wanna stay overnight
My shoulders right, my baby's all that I want
And I'll play them all of my favorite songs
That lady is my favorite one

I can't wait for you to come my way
I've been far away
But I'll keep runnin'
Just to find a way to you 'til then

Ain't never gonna let ya go
Got my heart NASCAR racing
Shining, never fading
He just left ya hangin'
Fiendin' for your love
All worth it for the waiting
Give you what you need (give what you need)
Take you where he won't (take you where he won't)
Can feel it when we're all alone
Know you're wanting something more
My heart is like an open door
Just ring me when you wanna go

I'll wait 'til you're home
Hold a place 'til you're comin' home
Show you where the garden grows
Just ring me when you wanna go

I can't wait for you to come my way
I've been far away




But I'll keep runnin'
Just to find a way to you 'til then

Mariposa
[Chorus: Joseph]
I can't wait for you to come my way
I've been far away
But I'll keep running
Just to find a way to you till then

[Verse 1: Tarrek]
I've been running from it
Tired of running from it
Scared of feeling something
Now I'm stuck here tryna get up outta this hole
I tried to be strong
I tried to make it work but I've been feeling too numb
Skies are beating on me
Why'd you leave me lonely?
Feeling Whitney, Stoney
Now I'm stuck here wondering where I ever went wrong
How could I be strong?
I'm fighting for your love

[Chorus: Joseph]
I can't wait for you to come my way
I've been far away
But I'll keep running
Just to find a way to you till then

[Verse 2: Issac]
I don't see light in your love anymore
There ain't no reason to call in a fall
I don't like feelings or feeling like running from something
And feeling so out of control
I know that the feelings are gone
I'm spending too much time alone
I'm hoping you pick up the phone
And ring me when you wanna stay overnight
My shoulder's right
My baby's all that I want
And I play them, all of my favourite songs
That lady is my favourite one

[Chorus: Joseph]
I can't wait for you to come my way
I've been far away
But I'll keep running
Just to find a way to you till then

[Bridge: Joseph]
Ain't never gonna let you go
Got my heart NASCAR racing
Shine ain't never fading
He just left you hanging
Fiending for your love
All worth it for the waiting
Give you what you need
Take you where you want
Can't feel it when we're all alone
Know you're wanting something more
My heart is like an open door
Just ring me when you wanna go

[Break: Joseph]
I'll wait till you're home
Hold a place till you're coming home
Show you where the garden grows
Just ring me when you wanna go

[Chorus: Joseph]
I can't wait for you to come my way
I've been far away
But I'll keep running
Just to find a way to you till then

@ClairDeLume

this song just makes me feel such happiness, and overall euphoria.

and there’s one specific memory my mind always wanders back to.
so it’s mid summer, 2019.
i live right next to a lake. so close in fact, i can walk there. i invited my boyfriend over, (crush at the time)
and i said “how about we go down to the lake and have lunch? the weathers nice!”
and he agreed!
so we walked down there. and as we were walking, i pulled out my phone and started playing this song. he asked, “what song is that? it sounds really good”
i said “mariposa, by peach tree rascals! one of my favorites!”
and he smiled so brightly, it felt like my heart was gonna burst LOL!

we reached the lake, and we sat down and had our lunch. i remember him just telling me so many things, as we sat there with the wind blowing lightly. it honestly felt like a dream.
he went on and on about life, occasionally asking about mine as well.
he said how much he loved summer, and that he remembers playing in the sprinklers as a kid.
it was honestly so nice. and after an hour or so, he asked “hey, can we listen to that song again? i really liked it, haha.”
and i was like “sure!”

so i pulled it my phone again and put on this song. and he grabbed my hand and pulled me up from the ground, and swung me around by my hands. and we were just acting silly, and dancing like lunatics lmao.


and from that day on, that was when summer became my favourite season.

which is crazy coming from someone like me who absolutely despised the season, but he changed my view on it in one day lol.
the things love does to you, i swear.



and to this day, we still go down to the lake every summer. and he stills asks me to play this song when walking.
warms my heart every time. literally. 😂
