Changing Horses Midstream


Words & Music by Clementine/Ian Sarabia

The combination is obscure like gravity pull
As time goes by things get unusually better
Spending so much time together
Relaxed with the thought these days were going to last

Your pattern was different than what it implied
It wasn’t description so much as disguise
I was saving it up, now it’s spent
And there’s no other remedy
There’s no other remedy…

So now I’m changing horses midstream
Although we had a good thing going
Time will tell who has fell
And who’s been left behind
Changing horses midstream
Wise up and give up all your fears
Do it for love, do it for love, and nothing else
It’s a nice day to fail and disappear

You said you wanted what the public wants
When all they want is public execution
“We were sliding all this time,
Not knowing that the glider was just climbing down,”
According to Jacob

Your actions were different than what they implied
They weren’t description so much as disguise
I was saving it up, now it’s spent
And there’s no other remedy
There’s no other remedy

So now I’m changing horses midstream
Although we had a good thing going
Time will tell who has fell
And who’s been left behind
Changing horses midstream
Wise up and give up all your fears
Do it for love, do it for love, and nothing else
It’s a nice day to fail and disappear

The long goodbye of the hunger strike
People grow apart, that’s how it is right
When insecurity towers cast shadows of doubt
Enough is enough!

So now I’m changing horses midstream
Although we had a good thing going
Time will tell who has fell
And who’s been left behind
Changing horses midstream
Wise up and give up all your fears
Do it for love, do it for love, and nothing else
It’s a nice day to fail and disappear!
