Got into a car, crashed along the way
And we arrived late to the wake, stole the urn while they looked away
And drove to the beach
'cause I knew you'd want it that way
And you were standing
On the hood of the car
Singing out loud
When the sun came up
And I know I wasn't right
But it felt so good
And your mother didn't mind
Like I thought she would
And that R.E.M song was playing in my mind
And three and a half minutes
Felt like a lifetime
And you move like water
I could drown in you
And I fell so deep once
'Till you pulled me through
You would tell me,
"No one is allowed to be so proud,
they never reach out, when they're giving up"
Are you sitting in the lights?
Or combing your hair again?
And talking in rhymes?
Are you standing in the lights?
When I got home, heard the phone, your parents had arrived
You know your dad set his jaw, your mom just smiled and sighed
(And you move like water)
But they left soon, and I went to my room
Played that disc that you'd given me
You know I shut my eyes
I swear I could hear the sea
We were standing
On the hood of your car
Singing out loud when the sun came up
