We all expect to be up for the next time you make it to town.
We all think you'll be there the next time we're around.
But some of us aren't gonna make; it back and forth, and back and forth. Some of us aren't gonna make it.
Well I haven't thought about him since I saw you for coffee in Brooklyn, and that wasn't even the reason, the reason I was there.
This isn't even the reason, the reason, I don't doubt.
I was thinking about them driving back to Norfolk, or any of my friends on all their careless routes.

We all expect to be up for the next time you make it to town.
We all think you'll be there the next time we're around.
But some of us aren't gonna make it; back and forth, and back and forth. Some of us aren't gonna make it.

Its non stop, its constant, making everything that I want, ever since back in Columbus, even with us spread out.
Its nonsense how constant making everything that we want, ever since back in Columbus, even with us spread out.

So we all expect to be up for the next time you make it to town.
We all think you'll be there the next time we're around.

    Song Meaningfrom the Defiance, Ohio website:

    "In the years that we’ve been a band, a lot of people have come to shows, put on shows, ate with us, helped us out, and become our friends! Some didn’t get the chance to make it the next time.

    This song is for the folks who made us lucky enough to be a part of their lives before they passed away."
