lyrics

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
