She used to have a place uptown
Where we used to hang around
When the evening sun went down
I’d buzz number two

I used to take the bus each day
And drop me a couple blocks away
She always used to let me stay
When the night was through

oh yeah
oh yeah…
oh yeah

I’d hear the neighbor’s dog downstairs
Bringing noise when I got there
But every time she never cared
She’d throw something up for me

We used to joke is her roommate lame
And she’d get back from her bad day
The three of us would stay up late
Just watching tv

Blue screen light
Flashing through an upstairs window
Table covered with the plates
And the take out food

It’s just the kind of moment
You know you never think about again
But you always do
Oh oh

Nothing quite so simple as
And time just rushes by so fast
Turn around in ten years past
I’ve seen some good old days

I lost track of her some how
Don’t even know where she lives now
She used to have a place up town
Where I could stay

oh yeah
oh yeah…
oh yeah

oh yeah
oh yeah…
oh yeah
