about

about my best friend and the week i smoked cigarettes and something i wish she actually said to me

lyrics

At the end of winter, sitting in the top of atree
Whistling down below to the people on the street
Making cookies in the basement at 2am
With your cigarettes, with your cigarettes

The cold came slowly but we were fine
Dancing our way across the state going 85
The highway hasn’t seen the best of us yet
With our cigarettes, with our cigarettes

Dont forget to die, now, you said to me
Standing in the window with your bruised knees
Don’t forget to cry, now, i said to you
Heaven’s only waiting if you want it to

We ran naked through the sprinklers, pretended it was a storm
Ran naked through the halls of our freshman dorm
Singing in the stairwell for all to head
What a year, oh what a year

Walking to the water, jumping in
I could say that metaphorically you helped me learn to swim
I wrote myself a note so i wouldnt forget
You, the road and our cigarettes

Dont forget to die, now, you said to me
Standing in the window with your bruised knees
Don’t forget to cry, now, i said to you
Heaven’s only waiting if you want it to

The living’s been good, the leavings not easy
I’d never ask you to stay just to please me
You’re headed back home now, where you belong
And i wrote this song, for you i wrote this song

Dont forget to die, now, you said to me
Standing in the window with your bruised knees
Don’t forget to cry, now, i say to you
I’ll love you from across the ocean blue
