Trace It Back

lyrics

Today I feel unusually well
Suspiciously so
I should try and trace it back
It might be useful to know
Why I burn a fraction more bright
Maybe it’s nothing
Or that a butterfly flapped its wings
But much like a temporarily mislaid actor’s name
It’ll bother me not to

Trace it back
Trace it back
Trace it back to the source

I feel uncommonly alive
And I'd love to know why
Gonnaa trace it back to the source

I start to riffle through my records of the day with my mind’s fingertips
But there's not one entry out of place
I should let it go

Was my step always this light?
It's right under my nose
On the tip of my tongue
It’s there and then it’s gone
Almost like I’m hiding some good news from myself
Oh I might just try to

Trace it back
Trace it back
Trace it back to the source

I’m uncommonly alive
And I need to know why
Gonna trace it back to the source

I’m frustratingly close

Just a second too long
If I didn’t know you so well
I’d say you paused in love
You paused in love
You paused
You
