Pearl Charles
Anytime Soon
[Verse 1]
You could come around once a year, like a Christmas ghost
Or hold me down like an anchor, baby, but you can't do both
I can't be your father figure, but I could be your friend
Watch me burn my candle crazy at both ends

[Chorus]
Nothing's gonna change here anytime soon
Catchin' fish in the mornin', get drunk before noon
Watchin' little brown bubbles floatin' in the spoon
Could be soakin' in a warm bath or back in the womb
Anytime, anytime soon

[Verse 2]
Used to want to be an astronaut, but I was just a kid
Spent my days in a batting cage where a robot pitched
Once you were my blushin' bride, I was your nervous groom
But now we're just more comfortable sleepin' in separate rooms, oh

[Chorus]
Nothing's gonna change here anytime soon
Make a bed for the roses, hope that they bloom
I don't know if it's safe, but I just a**ume
I won't play in the majors or walk on the moon
Not anytime, anytime soon

[Verse 3]
Spin me a tornado, honey, cry me a monsoon
Let's just get through the holidays and the terrible twos
Christmas has pa**ed, it's just yellow snow
Sometimes you gotta hear somethin' that you already know, whoa

[Chorus]
Nothing's gonna change here anytime soon
When it's all unpredictable, I can still count on you
Lookin' for the mailbox with the red balloons
I'll be late to the party, but I have an excuse
'Cause no one likes breakin' bad news
It's nothing I'm wantin' to do
Not anytime, anytime soon
