I wanted to take you to prom in my ice cream truck
you made me feel twenty feet tall but I couldn't stand up

Was I just your car crash
a scribbled note in your ten year old journal
will you think of me when you're watching
your nbc sitcoms
or the sunday night movie

As long as you're happy
as long as you're happy

Now you are painted fingernails and tampons
and I am one feathered wing and one naked arm

Was I just your stunt man
a temporary stand-in for your Hollywood superman
will you think of me when you're writing
your annual christmas letters
an update of the family

As long as you're happy
as long as you're happy

You kiss so deep
I could taste you in my toes
now you're so far I wouldn't even know how to say hello

Was I just your car crash
a scribbled note in your ten year old journal
will you think of me when you're watching
your nbc sitcoms
or the sunday night movie
was I just your stunt man
a temporary stand-in for your Hollywood superman
will you think of me when you're writing your annual christmas letters
an update of the family

As long as you're happy
as long as you're happy.

    General Commentthis song makes me half really really sad, and half really really hopeful that somewhere there's a boy that cares that much for me.

    General Commentthis song seems to be about how you have relationships with people that at the time could mean so much to you but after you break up you wonder whether or not you'll even remember each other 10 or so years down the road

    General CommentThis song makes me think of a boy who's alone and never really got over the girl he fell hardest for, but she has moved on with her life and maybe is married now. He never really moved on after her.
    "Was I just your car crash
    a scribbled note in your ten year old journal

    I think he thinks she may think he was just an accident to her, like a car crash, or maybe something insignificant from her past, just a scribble in her life. And he's hopeful that maybe when her mind wanders she'll think of him.
    My favorite lyrics are
    "
    was I just your stunt man
    a temporary stand-in for your Hollywood superman"
    How he thinks that he wasn't her real true love, that he was just a stand in for a more perfect person, but in the end all this doesn't matter because all he cares about is that she's happy.
