lyrics

I forgot who I was about a week ago
Making idle chat about the weather's hopes
March out in the sun, was sure to grab my coat
You know it changes fast, except for when it won't
I finally see where I belong
It took leaving town, it took this song
It's when the nights were warm
It's when the nights were long
And the laughter pulls me and it's fierce and strong
But now we make ends meet until we meet our ends
Doesn't have to be, but it seems the trend
Better have some kids, watch it start again
Help them grow up strong, help them pick their friends

You've got that two-tone heart
You've got to lay down low
You've got your brother to thank for all this thankless bother
You've got to lay down low

Pressing both your hands against the old shop front
To get a closer glimpse at what it is you want
Oh, how I envy you, how you can buy it up
Not some forgotten night in some forgotten park
So I stare again at my shuffling feet
With a song in my ears, they keep the beat
With a one, two, three, four, mercy me, I've got everything I could ever need

You've got that...

I forgot...

You've got that...
