lyrics

Cigarette smoke and dust filled our lungs
As we lay side by side on the floor
And I watch the bands of color fade
In and out over our skin

I was thirteen
Years following
I would be seventeen and alone
Detached until twenty years old

For weeks we'd drink ourselves to sleep
So we could not visualize the loss we'd seen
And when you were gone I'd smooth my skin
Against the sunlight coming in

I was thirteen
Years following
I would be seventeen and alone
Detached until twenty years old

I would watch the grass sweep back and forth
Until the impulse to cry was displaced with my
Overwhelming animosity I harbored for you

I was thirteen
Years following
I would be seventeen and alone
Detached until twenty years old
