You fell in love with the sunshine

And you took a walk with a boy

And you spent half a year on the verge of tears

Just because nothing ever feels like it did before

So now I understand if you're bitter

Frankly sometimes I do feel the same

It is amazing how in your own hometown the comfort and the pain

Well, they just grow

This is the field where I realized I loved you

And they just grow

This is the diner where we learned that people die before their time sometimes

The impermanence of it all, don't you let it make you feel too very small

We saw new constellations with each observation

The night sky grows bigger it seems

But under our ceilings is much more revealing

You'll find what we found in our dreams

Yes! I dreamt that all my old friends got together again

And potluck is something somewhere that we've never been

And we said "Oh and it's so strange

The way that people in situations change

You got caught up in some crazy current

Now it seems as though we speak a completely different language

But you'll always be as beautiful as the moment(3x) that we met"

And so I tried to write a song for my father

San Francisco bus rides that take way too long

He said "you're coming back home boy, Don't feel so alone

Love yourself and you will do no wrong."

But the interstate and life go on and on, And on and on and on and on

And I wrote my dad who likes blackbox recordings

Just to hear what people say

When they realize what's coming

About a second or so away

He said, "it starts with 'oh shit' and it ends with 'I'm sorry'"

And it plays in his head all the time

And I thought, “oh and it's so crazy

The ways we all sabotage our very own peace of mind”
