lyrics

The numbers on the calendar don’t make any sense
Too much time under tension on this side of the fence
She’s been learning bitter lessons, trying to swallow the pill
Waiting for relief to come, but it never will

She was making plans that could never be and couldn’t take the truth
Should have known that love alone will never make the world move
She was reaching past the borders of a comfortable life
To something far beyond her that’s impossibly high, so high

Don’t worry, it was only a dream
Some days her heart still thinks it’s seventeen
Don’t worry, it was just a dream
She’s waking up now to a whole new scene

Combat boots and flannel shirts, "Sick of Myself"
Those years were bound to the sound and lost to anything else
But as a little fish adrift at sea in waters too deep
It was easy just to disappear, make acquaintance with grief

On fertile ground a seed was sown that blossomed so fast
Without a clue that all youth has just a second to last
So it faded from the pictures she had drawn in her mind
Revised all her intentions then left it behind
