spoonboy – linus and me lyrics

Loading...

(verse)
linus and me, we were talking about first loves
how they burn out, leave you charred and then changed completely
i thought about that one summer burning in the suburbs
me and caroline making eyes and waiting on the subway
she’d sought me out like the stamp that finished her collection
like a dying breed in danger of extinction
and we fell into each other without the slightest bit of caution,
until the whole thing fell out from under our feet
i see caroline sometimes walking down the street,
and her heads all full up with those people she meets,
i wanna call out and say ‘hey thanks for everything caroline’
but she don’t go by that name no more

(chorus)
and if she saw me tonight, she wouldn’t look at me twice
but you know, don’t you know, it’s alright
alright. alright
me and caroline walked down different paths in life
but you know, don’t you know, it’s alright
alright. alright

(verse)
tommy and me, we had committed a crime
not a lot to it, just something we did at the time
there was war in the air and it troubled my mind
there were secrets between us but i’d been sure
the things we shared that they were ours
but there was something there i hadn’t seen before
when i saw tommy in his military uniform i knew
he’d been looking for a war.

(chorus)
and if he saw me tonight he might not look me in the eye
but you know, don’t you know, it’s alright
alright. alright.
me and tommy we had different wars to fight
but you know, don’t you know, it’s just gotta be alright

(verse)
it took a while thinking about someone new
before i broke and took down that old picture you drew
you know they say moving on is just something you do
i don’t know, it could be, i think sometimes it just happens to you
you find your path, and you take that road
and when you look back, i hope that you know
the things we share, and the ways we grow
its due to all the people we’ve known

(chorus)
and when you saw me tonight, i know it didn’t feel right,
but you know, don’t you know, it takes time, yeah it takes time
me and you we held a little too tight
but you know, don’t you know, it’s just gotta be alright
