Maybe it’s better that you are how you are And it’s something like you that has me falling apart While I’m pressed into you in the back of your car With your keys digging into your side. Reminds you of the time collecting interest. And no, I don’t remember anyone I haven’t seen for years. I don’t remember being anywhere but here.
Once she came like a vision in the night I fell in love before the morning arrived She wore a blue dress to combat the heat, Drank beer from a bottle and danced in the street Then I heard her singing something fairly familiar A tale of two lovers in the thick of the summer There in the moment we kissed in a hammock We argued over which Bad Religion album was better I thought “No Control” or “Suffer”
Then she became queen of the neighborhood parties While I was an unknown boy along for the ride Kept the guitar right by my side It was better than conversing with the kids I didn’t like But on the fourth of July as the fireworks rang out She met a new boy who was more hip and less strung out I drove home with fire in the sky Fiddled with the dials and stumbled across something That you were always humming
As time tables suggest, we were only just friends In constant motions covering stilts I’ll give you a dollar for another ride home Or something to mix with your Coke
