This is a song about being unsure about settling in a relationship, but about 93% of the way through writing it I realized it's actually about the finale of the TV show The Good Place.
Okay, so, everything’s okay
so far, in so far as what I like to do
Then you remind me it’s all at stake
but if you wanna settle it then I don’t wanna fight with you
I haven’t gotten sick of having you around
and it’s not gonna take a single night to prove.
Every single point you make is sound,
but if you wanna settle down then it can’t be a fight for you.
In short, you better be sure.
My assorted shortcomings might collude.
Three cordials, your head will be sore
but if you wanna settle it then I don’t wanna fight with you.
Don’t tell me we’re doing this again.
Impale me first, rather than the over sell.
You’ll see it when I know it ‘cause I’ll feel it then,
but if you wanna settle it then you can’t tell me go to hell.
I need my time,
even if you already know.
If I can’t decide,
I’ll understand if you let me go.
One day I will know as well.
I’ll feel it in my lungs when the time is due.
And if you’re with me, we could even go to hell.
We can settle it, ‘cause I never wanna fight with you.
