lyrics

Down in Virginia you didn’t have it in you.
Did she bend over backwards, trying to hold back all the laugher?
Or did she know what I was after?
I’m getting’ nervous.
But only on the surface because this time is different.
I’m full of piss and vinegar.
It’s always been a disaster. Maybe I’ll drive a bit faster.

I didn’t drive into Boston just to dance with anyone other than you.
I didn’t come all this way not to follow through.
I didn’t crawl out of Allston just to dance with anyone other than you.
I’m not leaving this city ‘til I leave with you.

That Summer was such a fuckin’ bummer.
I was crushed beneath the weight of the rock that I was under.
And you ran out of time. And then you traded the Metro for the Red Line.
And you can be sure that I have synchronized my watch this time

I didn’t drive into Boston just to dance with anyone other than you.
I didn’t come all this way not to follow through.
I didn’t crawl out of Allston just to dance with anyone other than you.
I’m not leaving this city ‘til I leave with you.

She acts relaxed. Knows just when to play it cool.
She thinks her parents will look at her funny if she goes to one of those state schools.
She knows the devil’s in the details from her years of working retail.
And all of those emails from colleges that tell her “there’s still time”.
But she knows and so do I.

I didn’t drive into Boston just to dance with anyone other than you.
I didn’t come all this way not to follow through.
I didn’t crawl out of Allston just to dance with anyone other than you.
I’m not leaving this city ‘til I leave with you.
