I spent the last few years
Really struggling yeah

From fighting urges
And just screaming through
All the friendships
And the fuckups
And the nights that got away from us

So I lined up a bottle
For each question asked
I closed a chapter on a city that contained most
And landed
In some outer borough
Where I picked up the keys from your neighbor next door

You may have been bounced around yourself now once or twice
You may have mentioned it when we were
Passing in the night
But I remind you of a place you come from
I said, you probably should take more pride in that

And I see how we drifted apart
I'm only comfortable looking at you when I talk
You've been a good friend, darling
But just not a lover yet

So we spent the best years
Painting pictures of
The adults we knew
Or the adults we were running from
But oh, the things I could of said to you then
If I had the man speaking for the boy I was back then

Those were last words I said was 17
I look at you now and I think,
Oh my God, I'm about as together
And with it
And clever as I ever
Was back then

But I see how we drifted apart
I'm only comfortable looking at you when I talk
You've been a good friend, darling
But just not a lover yet

But old bones hold in place these dates
Old bones carry me where I am
