about

This song is about my friend Shane, who lived next to me for a very long time, and how growing up can really suck.

lyrics

I remember when we met when you had first moved in
We went down into your basement the door was open
And we sat by the window
And looked out at the swingset
We were just kids
We were just kids

I remember when you told me it was time for you to go to college
I remember waking up and going out and wondering where your car went

And I was so alone on that summer night when you came home to see your old friends
I looked you dead in the eyes and insisted that you stayed for the weekend

I remember waking up when the sun would punch my eyelids
I remember when you'd laugh at me every time I did something stupid
And I was waiting for a good time to give you back your bracelet
I would joke around and say that I couldn't remember where I put it

It's still inside my drawer and all I wanna do is find a way to give it back
It's the only thing you left, I am tired of being attached

And you were feeling lost in California
While I was in my room trapped in Virginia
If I had been the one to walk away
I probably would've done the same exact thing

(Mandolin Solo)

But you were feeling lost in California
While I was in my room trapped in Virginia
If I had been the one to walk away
I probably would've done the same exact thing
I'm sitting on the swing in your backyard
And looking at the porch where you used to eat on
There are countless things I should have said
Just couldn't get the thoughts out of my head

This song is dedicated to my good friend Shane, who moves away to college this year. He's like a brother to me and things are going to feel really different around here for a really long time.

Good luck, buddy!
