lyrics

I felt your fields and how we ran in them
from all your friends, Michaela counts to ten
I think she's pretty.
I heard a song in all your loveliness
retreat to branches above rocky cliffs
They've called my name for decades
I heard it in a dream last night.

You turned and smiled for a friend you knew
The sun retreated, now you're twenty-two
and trying to remember
the things that made you feel at home.

I closed my eyes to see my name
Soft hands on my back,
the ink absorbed into the grain
Remember standing there that day
I was beaming on my mountaintop
"Just look at what we've made."
I could barely whisper but it echoed on the lake
"I'm home."

But what's an end without a dinner bell
and parents screaming
"Andy what the hell!
You've got flowers in your hair."
"I swear that's just the way they fell!"

I craned my neck to see my name
one last time before I left
The cedar smelled the same
Remember standing there that day
I was shaking as they held me,
I was born to feel this way
Meaghan's hand was on my shoulder
and I knew I couldn't stay

I was shaking at the thought of it, cursing on the steps and Chris was quiet like you should be when the truth is sinking in. I could've sworn I had a few weeks to say a quick goodbye, I've never been too good at those though, anyway I think I'm fine until I'm back up to my room, open the box of notes I kept and bracelets. Phoebe texted me last night. I guess that I'm alright, it's just that

waking up, I'm back to that first day.
Grass and gravel made me feel like things were gonna change.
