lyrics

Stumbling out of the CVS
You were still coming down from the X
I grabbed myself a gummy bear
& you lit up a cigarette
I joked you were drunk as a skunk
Pointed at the silver streak in your hair
You took a drag as deep as regret
& you laughed like you didn't care

We walked through the rain
I remembered the time
That you shotgunned me with a kiss
& you got me high
I left you to follow fool's gold
Like the fool I'll always be
If it's any consolation your life would be much smaller
If you had stayed with me

If I could light all my hopes like a flare
& watch them spark & explode through the air
Would they fill the sky or go unheard like a prayer

I never told you but I saw you on your birthday
At the karaoke bar where we met
I was walking home from Material Girls
Feeling hollow & depressed
Nostalgia & the smoke from the bar stung my eyes
You were circled by your friends
I only saw the back of your head
I pretended I got a phone call & left
