Despite your first impression, I had her home be eleven
And I could see in her walk that I’d be grieving and brooding,
Hanging my feet off the dock

And if I’m short a dollar,
A long bath in cold water could keep me that way
So I took off my jacket and shoes and I leapt in the bay

Did you write it upside down? Poor you
Hold her head down till she drowns

I was looking around
Lowering stakes for too long
And I think that I missed my chance to see it while I’m young

I got some peace of mind by cutting a few brake lines
And idling in the driveway
Because the end of the cul-de-sac was too steep a decline
So despite my best intentions,
It’s still 2011
And if you want to stay up we can talk a bit longer before my parents get up

Did you move out of your town? Poor you
Hold your head down till you drown

I’ve been looking around
Lowering stakes for too long
Maybe I’m not supposed to see it at all while I’m young
