Riverside Twilight, in mid July.
Sittin on a hillside, with a glow in your eyes.
Your mother’d be worried you took the wrong path.
Your father’s been workin, workin his ass off.

A primary story, you heard in Sunday school
But nothing is perfect, no happy endings here.
Your sister’d be worried your losing your mind.
Your brothers been finding, finding god in his heart.

So I need you, now

(girl)
More than ever I could always say never,
but the weather's gettin ripe
and my heart is getting lighter

and I wouldn't want

To compromise your future,
make you wanna pull the trigger,
or throw yourself in the snake river

(together)
no we wouldn't want that.
Not when the night's as clear as glass.
Not when its already as tough as
the reality we've been swalloing.

(boy)
NO we couldn't have that,
not when I'm already stretched out,
with things never bein like I thought.
No we couldn't have that.

(girl)
Take a breath, breathe easy.
take a breath, breathe easy.
I never said I didn't
I never said I didnt mean a thing.

(boy)
I gotta leave.
I gotta leave.
I gotta leave before summer ties me here.

so I'm singing:

(together)
Riverside Twilight, in mid July.
Sittin on a hillside, with a glow in your eyes.
Your mother’d be worried you took the wrong path.
Your father’s been workin, workin his ass off.

A primary story, you heard in Sunday school
But nothing is perfect, no happy endings here.

so I need you now

so I need you now
