hey cat 03:35
LYRICS: i was wishin’ you would be the one that got away, not the one that got away with all the shit you did. ‘cause i could write you songs with fairytales or violins but carry on believing all the lies you need to win this oh, we were more like a pop song ‘til, baby, it went wrong and now we’re just static on the radio oh, you’re a voice in a memory that keeps me pretending that i might make my way home hey cat, what you gotta say about that? one dance, bet it on a heart attack one day your eyes glow cold and we woke up so much older hey cat, blame me when the seasons change these days i’m trying to forget your name don’t wanna sing along to some sort of stupid love song looking back it’s kind of funny in sad way or so damn tragic that there’s nothing else to do but laugh but i remember how you giggle when you’re nervous so maybe all you taught me is there’s not really a difference oh, we were deep in a cliche: it starts with a bad day and ends with a chorus on the radio oh, you’re a storm in a small lake that buries the good days from when i knew my way home but faith got broken on a friday night one day you’re here the next you’re drivin’ to run and flee or fall and fight... but all it took for me was to catch you smilin’ don’t blame me if your feelings change i was begging to forget your name don’t wanna sing along to some sort of stupid love song

about

The Small Calamities

A whirlwind of punk rock angst, power pop hooks & Americana jangle, The Small Calamities blend a wry humor, Springsteenesque imagery, and naked earnestness to create what reviewers have called “imagery-laden anecdotes" & "poison-tipped confessionals". Smash Mouth follows them on twitter. ... more
