Lyrics[edit | edit source]

it's just a stitch in time
it's perfect, i don't mind
sailing on your endless sea
you're perfect, i don't mind
i've got your stitch in mine
everywhere i wanna be

don't say you want too much
they'll say you've had enough
don't let them lay their trips on you

there's somewhere i just gotta be
you're everywhere at once, and you can't break free
you're everywhere at once, and you can't catch me, watch out
there's somewhere i just gotta be

it's just a stitch in time
we fit together fine
a puzzle looking for its piece
you're perfect, i don't mind
your travel makes you mine
everywhere i look i see

don't say you want too much
they'll say you've had enough
don't let them lay their trips on you

there's somewhere i just gotta be
you're everywhere at once, and you can't break free
you're everywhere at once, and you can't catch me, watch out
there's somewhere i just gotta be
