Sleep on the Floor
The Lumineers Lyrics


Pack yourself a toothbrush dear
Pack yourself a favorite blouse
Take a withdrawal slip
Take all of your savings out
'Cause if we don't leave this town
We might never make it out
I was not born to drown
Baby come on

Forget what Father Brennan said
We were not born in sin
Leave a note on your bed
Let your mother know you're safe
And by the time she wakes
We'll have driven through the state
We'll have driven through the night
Baby come on

If the sun don't shine on me today
And if the subways flood and bridges break
Will you lay yourself down and dig your grave
Or will you rail against your dying day

And when we looked outside
Couldn't even see the sky
How do you pay the rent
Is it your parents
Or is hard work dear
Holding the atmosphere
I don't wanna live like that, yeah

If the sun don't shine on me today
If the subways flood and bridges break

Jesus Christ can't save me tonight
Put on your dress, yes wear something nice
Decide on me, yea decide on us
Oh, oh, oh, Illinois, Illinois

Pack yourself a toothbrush dear
Pack yourself a favorite blouse
Take a withdrawal slip
Take all of your savings out
'Cause if we don't leave this town
We might never make it out

We were fresh outta high school and totally in love. After a month of dating, he asked me to marry him and I said yes. Our hippie friend married us in a public park behind the brush. It was magical.

A week later we decided to move across the country and start a new life. We packed up my Honda coupe as much as we could just to get out of town. We left suddenly, without telling a soul where we were going.

We ended up breaking down in East Texas. A mechanic told us the car was scrap metal and that he'd buy it off of us for $200. That was just enough to get us to Chicago on the next train out of the state.

We waited 8 hours in an empty train station. Not a soul except for the occasional janitor. It was barren, old, and very still. We were in another dimension. Just 4 carry ons, a couple train tickets, and each other.

Over a year later and we are still together and more in love than ever.

This song made me realize that I’m more in love with the thought of being in love than actually being in love with someone.

Honestly that's ok, I'm in a relationship and don't really like people so somethings I think differently by the day. I will say that all love is is like being with the person and if you wanna stay even when your life or relationship doesn't look like the ones depicted in media. Not to say to get in a abusive relationship just a REAL one. That also includes yourself before I met my guy froma friend I'd have day dates and spend a lot of time by myself and I had so much fun and was happy. With schedule winding down I hope to do it agian soon. My point is I love the idea of love as well because it makes life a bit more bearable even if it's by yourself.
