I drove three nails into the back of my closet door
I hung my flannel shirts up, leavin' room for a couple of more
Mudhoney took the west wall, Nirvana took the south
Dinosaur Jr. played on the stereo and the spaghetti-o's went in my mouth
And I didn't have a clue, everything was so new
And my empty heart was just startin' to start
Can you remember when this happened to you?
I met a girl on the street who had done the same thing as me
The same school and everything and she quit too and moved here to be free
We never met in Vinson's but we had seen each other around

Funny how things can work out sometimes, we both ended up here in this same little town
And she was sweet to me, she smoked a lot of weed
Tom fell for her roommate, we would double date
For a while everything was great
But newborn kids like to hear things break
You see I was straightedge or so I thought
And I couldn't seem to deal with the fact that she smoked so much pot
So I think I might have broke her heart
But I don't even know if I meant anything but I know I crashed into her mom's car
And I see her sometimes and I don't know if she remembers me

Tom's favorite band was the Smashing Pumpkins
He came home sad one day because what he read
They got signed to a major label, he said now they would be huge
I said that I don't think so, no, they don't have what it takes
To be on the radio, no, they sound too strange
These were my last days with Tom
I was a tick-tick-tick time bomb
Wherever you are now, my friend, I hope you're having a great time
Thank you so much, thank you for this life
Yes, thank you so much, thank you for this life
