Lyrics

An hour ago I went down to that store
The place that we used to go
Way down on Martha Road
I walked down three aisles, got some chips and a Four Loko

And while I was there I saw a pair of shoes that I know that you used to wear
It’s been a month since you were in my hair
And shit, well I guess that I’m now back here

This is hopeless, winter solstice, under the snow, two years ago when we had our first kiss
Im trying not to reminisce
No more, no more
But at this point I really think that I am just hopeless

But darling I know that was years ago
We were just kids
were just kids
were just kids
were just kids
were just kids

And I keep telling myself the same thing
We were just kids
were just kids
were just kids
were just kids
were just kids

And I’m obsessed with dreaming, restless
I still have that necklace; you got me on that Christian Christmas now I’ve lost my religion

I’m breaking all the mirrors, cussing, lies, telling fears
Can’t you see what you’ve done to me without your here but

Jesus, I know that was years ago
We were just kids
were just kids
were just kids
were just kids
were just kids

And I keep on telling myself the same thing
We were just kids
were just kids
were just kids
were just kids
were just kids

And I’m snapping myself out of this
cause this is no way to live
No, this is no way to live
And I’m
I’m talking to my therapist
To get me out of this
To get me out of this
And maybe if I write all of this shit down,
And give in, it may help me get it all out
Because, because I know
I know
I know
And I know
And I know
And I know

Well darling, I know that was years ago
We were just kids
were just kids
were just kids
were just kids
were just kids

And I keep on telling myself the same thing
We were just kids
were just kids
were just kids
were just kids
were just kids
