lyrics

I think that I know you as well as I can. Just about as much as a few verses of poetry written in tenth grade that I’ve been re-reading for years. It’s terrible, I know, but I remember how I felt at fifteen. I finally said something. Familiar as a book that’s not left my bedside in ten years. I know you like a saccharine sweet pop song I’ve been humming out of key all day. I see you when I close my eyes. Is that cliche? That’s okay. I need you to be comfortable when you spread out on my couch. Familiar as a book that’s not left my bedside in ten years. I know you like the taste of stolen liquor from my father’s cabinet. When we were just drunk kids, getting into shit, I knew even then I wanted to marry you. I think that I know you as well as I can. I keep on singing out of key all day. “This life is a dream,” I wrote. “I remember the day I fell asleep. When I met you, everything changed.” It’s terrible, I know, but I remember how I felt at fifteen. I still feel the same way.
