I've been for sad for days about the Way I said that you were nothing
I said you were nothing
I would break my bones before
I'd take a thing that you need to believe in

Practices in the basement
Of your parents house
It felt like it did when we were kids
I knew (I knew)
You'd be there (you'd be there)
And I still do
I know it's true

I knew (I knew)
You'd be there (you'd be there)

And the mistakes I made
Will never be forgiven
Will they forget?
Will they ever forget?
All the years I stumbled over
I followed you because I loved you
Oh yeah, I loved you

Spring drives over cokes
I know things have changed
But I still feel you here at the boxing club
We got love but you have made me tough
And I always love you

Practices in the basement
Of your parents house
It felt like it did when we kids
I knew (I knew)
You'd be there (you'd be there)
And I still do
I know it's true

I knew (I knew)
You'd be there (you'd be there)

Ba ba bada da da
Ba ba bada da da Na Na

Ba ba bada da da
Ba ba bada da da Na Na

You know I'll be here
Waiting for you

    always made me think of conor.
    you know, park ave, neely singing with conor on songs like feb. 15th, and the fact that "woo!" was recorded in the basement of conor's house

    ..it seems to make sense!

    General Commenti specifically looked for this song so i could say exactly whar mrs-mojo-risin just said lol. those were my exact same points. weird.

    but in addition to that, the line in conor's song you are the roots that sleep beneath my feet and hold the earth in place, "I met you through a common friend
    In the attic of my parents' house"
    kinda makes me think of neely. maybe. i don't have as much support for that thought, but just the idea of them living near eachother and hanging out in eachother's houses and what not.
