thanks for the ride to the airport
my head got stuck out the window
and it felt so good cause i've never had
that kind of luck on my way home

when i got out, you were there
knocking on the front door
the cold gets in the things you wear
so good, it's that time of year

thanks for stopping by the river
so i could run to take it
for every day we wake
here's one to remember
the first day of october

it don't mean much
we never had a chance
we're out of touch
and the space between us spells it out
it don't mean much
we never had a chance
we're out of touch

    General CommentI haven't heard this song but it sounds absolutely beautiful. I like "thanks for stopping by the river, so I could run to take it." Sounds pretty lonely.

    General CommentThis song is amazing.

    but really, why do people pu cover songs on bands' profiles on here?

    ...why not just analyze the meaning in the band who actually made the song's lyric list?

    General CommentYeahyeahyeah! =D
    I love this Limbeck song so much.
    I wish i could have been at the tour where
    the two bands covered eachother like-a-ton.
    I haven't heard anything that limbeck covered
    of Motion City's though. If someone wants to help me
    out. . . it would be greatly appreciated. This song is absolutely amazing though. Motion city does it justice.

    General CommentHaha no way! It's Perfect Teeth in rockabilly acoustic fashion... awesome.

    I love MCS's cover here too, it's great, though I haven't heard the original.

    General CommentGotta say, it hits me every time.

    The song really has a bittersweet tinge to it that Motion City really brings out.
