saint etienne – the boy scouts of america lyrics


like a birthday card / from a previous year, /
the weather in chayco / is sparkling and clear. /
the girl lies in bed, / the boy sits in the yard. /
he wants to talk sleep / but he has to keep guard. /

she stirs from her sleep / and she calls for a beer; /
he knows there are none / and pretends not to hear. /
she hears his breath / like she’s heard it before. /
she cuddles her sheets / as he slips out the door. /

god had derailed / the lonestar train /
that can take her away / from sadness and pain. /
he acts like a saint / but the strain really shows; /
the boy scouts of america / taught him all that he knows.
