lyrics

This hotel room is just what we were hoping for
Only a stone's throw from the shore
And a block or two away from the liquor store
And you haven't looked at me that way
For as long as I wouldn't let you
But I let you swim your way back home

Through the towels on the bathroom floor
Through the sheets where I wanted you more
Through the fucked-up lobby door
You broke us in in my shirt you wore

And we drank it down—the wine we poured
As our Yearbook soundtrack played
Under the cosmic dust we swore
That we'd both see again some day
But it's permanent—the buzz it leant
And every slurred sweet nothing said
Still it's nothing new
They’ve been there since the day I met you

We slept in through the weekend's last sunrise
Wiping the makeup from both your eyes
As we hurriedly packed our bags before new guests arrived
And I hadn't looked at you that way
For as long as I wouldn't let me
But I let me drive us both back home

From the sand still in both our teeth
From the sunburns on both of our knees
From the trip we didn't know we'd need
Funny how it worked out perfectly

And I wrote it down—the words you said
And then I tucked ‘em all away
Forewent the pen, instead used lead
In case I make the same mistakes
But it's permanent—the curves and bends
Of every letter's deep indent
Still it's nothing new
They've been there since the day I met you
