MUSIC IN THE BACKGROUND - LYRICS
 

(V1)

On the coldest of days and the darkest of nights
You were a sunlit silhouette, along for the ride
With a taste that was bitter but I needed a bite
Had a complicated past, that was heavy to hide
Now we’re a long, long way from there

(C1)

All the mistakes I made are in the past now,
Everything hereafter is music in the background

(V2)

It was a small town sin on a Saturday night
And your eyes shining bright in the carnival light
Had a run-in with a bully but I played it polite
Oh, but I kept my head, I wasn't looking to fight
Now we’re a long, long way from there

(V3)

Off we're running, there's no time to look back
And in another heartbeat you adopted a cat
And you said you'd name it Cinnamon but then gave it back
Turns out she's allergic, as a matter of fact
Now we’re a long, long way from there

(C2)

All the mistakes I made are in the past now,
Everything hereafter is music in the background
All the mistakes I made are in the past now,
Everything hereafter is music in the background
Don't remind me of the weather, we belong together now
From the moment that I met her; this could be forever now

(Bridge)

That dress, it fits you well, fits you well
Don't ask, I won’t tell
When that light it hits you well, hits you well
I see the butterflies, feel the butterflies
Hiding in your eyes, hiding in your eyes

(C3)

All the mistakes I made are in the past now,
Everything hereafter is music in the background
All the mistakes I made are in the past now,
Everything hereafter is music in the background
Don't remind me of the weather, we belong together now
From the moment that I met her; this could be forever now
