lyrics

I drove past the billboard on top of the apartment where we used to live.
They covered your graffiti up with an ad for cheap sedatives.
I heard you met at the symphony.
I was at the punk rock show just down the street.
You said “It’s nothing like our love,
Just another version of retreat.”

I said “Growing up is hard and we aren’t what we used to be.”
And I haven’t slept a single night since you started talking in your sleep.
You said “I’m not the girl you fell in love with,” but you always believed in me.
And I haven’t slept a single night since you were singing in your sleep.

I drove past the coffee shop where we told stories of our younger days.
They say you don’t come by anymore, but they’re closing anyway.
I heard you cut the blue out of your hair and dropped your records in the sea.
This isn’t the life you thought you knew or the promises you made to me.

I said “Growing up is hard and we aren’t what we used to be.”
And I haven’t slept a single night since you started talking in your sleep.
You said “I’m not the girl you fell in love with,” but you always believed in me.
And I haven’t slept a single night since you were singing in your sleep.

Drove through the center of town, where we almost made a life,
Up to the place where they hang their Christmas lights.
Now I’m not broken. I am just a passerby.
Met you on the corner of a street called Dandelion.
But that was a different time…

I said “Growing up is hard and we aren’t what we used to be.”
And I haven’t slept a single night since you started talking in your sleep.
You said “I’m not the girl you fell in love with,” but you always believed in me.
And I haven’t slept a single night since you were singing in your sleep.
