Elizabeth & The Catapult - The Horse And The Missing Cart lyrics

You don't want to live by too many morals
Despite what your elders whispered in the cradle
Don't want to write the end before the start

And you don't want to dwell on what is beyond you
Despite what your better virtues may tell you
Don't want to put the horse before the you know what, you know what

Oh, oh, oh

It's best not to live by too many morals
Enjoy the first sip before you finish the bottle
Don't want to lie in that bed before you made it

And don't second-guess something once you believe it
The world keeps on turning; you can take it or leave
Don't want to put the course before the heart

Cause you don't want to write that finishing line
Before you recall that arc in your mind
Careful to not be so careful before you step outside

You don't want to paint that finishing touch
Until you recall what you're dreaming of
Don't want to preach yourself out, out of too much life, out of too much life

Cause it's best not to dwell on some other man's fortunes
Another man's cravings, another girl's portions
Don't want to bet that sum before the parts

And it's best not to fancy too many favors
The more you are now, the less you are later
Don't want to put the horse before the cart

You don't want to whine before you're ducked under
Best to jump now and think on it after
It's best to be stupid and selfish while you're still young

Cause you don't want to be so overly cautious
So fucking worried you're lost in the process
Best to forget yourself now, right at the start

Cause you don't want to write that finishing line
Before you recall that arc in your mind
Careful to not be so careful when you step outside

You don't want to paint that finishing touch
Before you recall what you're dreaming of
Don't want to preach yourself out, out of too much life

Life

You don't want to preach yourself out

Of life

You don't want to preach yourself out
