she was a kind of old music in
jeans to big for excuses and i
was just so typically 18
we got quick down to killing it
even though her man was only minutes away
and she was technically 17

these are the kind of brief moments where
seemingly opposite components align
yes we were just so improbable
steeped in a world of our own making so
we got a slow education in how
we hate ourselves more than anything

yes i drink and seek to push it away
and she's afraid of feeling afraid
so we take turns in our resolve to betray
the only good thing that we picked up along the way

lock the roommates out
get your playlist out
dip the dimmer on the lights down
and by the third time....

oh but the second turn was difficult
what i learned was just how miserable i
became with no one who spoke to me
but we were perfect just the two of us
yes it was urgent, true, and new and we tried
invented words to say...
