ten years older than i was
what i brought you down to see,
what i thought would make you fall in love

wearing off on our dreams
someday man i'm gonna be no different than the other rivers
i tried to look at you but i couldnt break the ice
you stood out there for an hour freezing
put your hand around my back
i guess you thought i needed that

i never try to find you
i hope you don't remember me
i hope your not alone

wanted me to take you home
you said you'd rather be alone
i never thought of that
car is warm and we had wine
but i couldn't find the perfect song

now our furniture for the one with crows feet and i can't even remember the call
sometimes i can feel your weight when i close my eyes
seven times i was under you

i never try to find you
i hope you dont remember me
i hope your not alone
i don't wanna know what your thinking
i'm looking out the window
just fucking drinking

shallow frame and shaky sticks but i know there's a river in me
shallow minded adult tricks but i know there's a river in me
