Hey, I know it's getting pretty late
But I was wondering how are things around the office these days?
Did your boss ever give you that raise?
Does that girl still work next door, the one with the fucked up teeth that you hate?

And anyway, I guess I'm calling to say
I was thinking back to when we went to school upstate
With a full week before classes in September
You got the best seat in the house
Sprawled out on the couch for the night
And you stayed there for a whole semester

Hey, I know it's getting pretty late
But I was thinking I could swing by your office tomorrow on your break
You could tell your roommate to cover us while we're away
And do you think that it would be a shame

If I wished that we were back in school again
If only so I could walk you home
Before you got your own place with your own bills to pay
I know it's getting pretty late, tomorrow morning you've got work

And I know you don't like calling
Putting yourself out there to hurt
But just say the word and I'll be outside in the parking lot
With the engine running by the curb

I'll even let you pick the records we play
All I want to do is waste some time with you
And drive the night away
So if you get this message, call me back whenever
I'll be around all day

    General Commentim surprised no one has commented yet. ithink these guys are pretty good. obviously about a couple that grew up and apart, and he misses her.

    General Commentmicrowaves got it pretty much correct
    its about a couple that weretogether when they were young but broke up eventually
    but hes still saying that he cares for her and will be there whenever she needs him
