hello old friend
it's been awhile
how you've been?

all things must end
but did you know
what that meant?

the birds fly south
the summer sets
the lights go out

bees on the ground
autumn walker
just walked out

and i see it now
that it's so much easier
and you don't have to worry about me
it's all good
it's all wrong

and i hope you find the place
and the people that you need
i don't be the one who always waits
for you to wait to see

what makes you run?
was it me?
or anyone?

it goes to show
when people grow
people go

and there you go
autumn walker
stay down
autumn walker

drink down your doubt
a glass half empty
can empty you out

my heart is full
of promises that drank me whole

and i see it now
that so much easier alone
but you don't have to go that far
cause wherever you go
there you are

and it shouldn't be so hard
to see your friends, that's who they are
i don't mean to tell you how to run your life
but make up your heart

you go too far
in the atmosphere you fall apart
for miles that my car's got on it
that's pretty far

    General Comment'make up your heart', indeed.
    i would say that this is my favorite song off the new album.
    & the album, as a whole, is pretty impressive.

    General Commento. and i hear 'more miles than my car's got on it' as opposed to 'for miles...on it'.

    General CommentA few corrections:
    "and i see it now
    that it's so much easier -alone-"

    "-more- miles that my car's got on it
    that's pretty far"

    I think that's it. A splendid song.

    General CommentBees on the ground? Hahahaha


    It's supposed to be "leaves on the ground."

    It's also "Stay now, autumn walker," not "stay down."

    Great song though, lyrics are pretty self explanatory, if not moving.

    My OpinionMy favorite lyrics of any Jets or Jawbreaker song I think. A glass half empty can empty you out. Cheers.
