It’s crazy to think how I was living like a prisoner
But now I am free, not tied to a past I never wanted anyway
Life before I met you was just a bunch of yesterdays
But now I worry I’ve invested too much
Because when you’re away from me
Everything just gets so ugly

Giving you my heart was not a mistake, I don’t regret it
And though it shook up my friends
I hope that they know that I still love them all the same
I just had to move on and start my grown-up life with you
You and me and our little Alabee
My god, it happened to me
I really have my own family

    General CommentI love this song. For the longest time I thought it was a part of "Sunlandic Twins" (because the rip I downloaded said so). I wish it was. It's terrific.

    General CommentListening to this on Sunlandic Twins makes the next album all the more tragic. It was on the vinyl version I think so I'd consider it legitimately part of sunlandic twins.
