After the band had played, you kissed my cheek
And you told me to meet you there later.
So I walked through the university
And auditioned your new friend, the painter.

I walked for awhile
I walked for awhile

I found the house and I walked in the door
You were there, you were wearing his jacket.
He took his shirt off as he went to pour,
Had a paper-back in his back pocket.

And I knew
And I knew
And I knew
And I knew

So I told you we’re through
I made up some excuse
But I just wanted to
Say it first

By then the bus wasn’t running no more
So I sat on the couch with some no-one.
I couldn’t sleep so I laid on the floor,
And I heard you two letting your hair down.

Lettin’ it down
Lettin’ it down

Longest night
Longest night
Longest night

Sometimes when I light a cigarette I
think about the first time that I met you.
Outside the show in the dirt colored snow
You offered me one and I let you.
