lyrics

With the skeleton of a city riding on my back I dare not compare myself to you right now. And the vultures of my memory have already been, they’ve had their fair shake at it. So it’s your turn now, take your hit, take what you want, what’s left you can have.

And I can't say just what my future holds but right now I know what it doesn’t are dreams of American suburbia. So I’ve been staring down these side streets, to the end as far as I can see, wondering which way I have to go to leave. // But you well know just as well I do that all our actions are just reactions to counter the side effects of the future. And you well know just as well I do that all things can always change.

And this weekend and I’m back in town, 500 hundred yards from you, sleeping in an empty house. I didn’t tell you, I didn’t let you know, cause you’ve been close to impossible but I don’t really blame you, no. But you’ve been close to impossible so I didn’t tell you, I didn’t let you know, that I’ve been ghosting around right under your nose.

And I’ve spent all my time at 42
catching up and doing work, hoping to run into you.
I’ve spent all my time at 42
catching up and doing work, hoping to run into you.
I’ve spent all my time at 42
getting nothing done, hoping to run into you.
I’ve spent all my time at 42
getting nothing done, hoping to run into you.

But you have to know there was a time you were the only reason that I ever came home. But at 9 o’clock they’re closing up and I’ve stopped waiting for you to walk through the door. I’ve stopped waiting for you to walk through the door. I’ve stopped waiting for you to walk past the door.

And Orion’s Belt’s replaced by streetlights, green three straight ahead of me. And I’m hitting speeds just to tempt the fates and the police. But I slow at every headlight searching for your car. I never realized how many people drive fucking Camrys in this town.
