lyrics

Verse
You’re Only 23 but creeping up on 50
Well you’re so cool standing there tattoos and piercings
Lonely as a ghost in a room so full of friends
Who never knew quite as well as I thought I did

Still going to shows, and listening to Jesse
Like you’re his Muse, you say your middle name is daisy
But I’m solid as a fence and your fist’s gone way past broke
Your existential break turned out to be a joke

Do you remember all those Thursday shows
Or that Texas is the Reason
I have Feared Before The March Of Flames, but please leave don’t Say Anything
And if you need me Ill be Running with a Band of Horses

I tried to buy a home from Sunny Day
But the grounds so full of Mineral
And Id swear now Underoath that someone’s Poisoned the Well
So now Im drinking down on State St. at the Neutral Milk Hotel

Chorus
I THOUGHT THAT YOU CAME HERE TO SAVE ME
ITS DANGEROUS TO START SOMETHING
WE KISSED AND IT SEEMED LIKE A DAYDREAM
BUT SOON We’ll BE GONE AND ALONE

FRANTIC I SHOULD BE DOING SOMETHING
LIKE SCREAM AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS
WE KISSED AND IT SEEMS LIKE A DAYDREAM
AND NOW WE ARE DEAD BROKE AND GROWN

Verse
As king command Off With Their Heads, cause our Clashes all seem useless
I am broke but I will Rise Against, what a Misfit sense of sentiment
I am Joan of Arc in the worst of ways, an Adict and Im struggling

Ive got Broken Bones and Promise Rings, Im a fake a full Fugazi
I Refuse to let your bullshit in, riding down to Brandston
Just me an Owen, Lights and Motion, for The Love of Everything

Verse
You’re Only 33 but creeping up on 50
Tattoos and booze just standing there now drunk and angry
Still lonely as a ghost, in a room with to few friends
Who never liked you quite as much as I thought I did
