they're always glad to see you.
trot out the same old jokes,
avoid the things that seem new.
no talk about the wife -
she lives with someone else now.
forget your former life,
warm love became a cold cow.
driving to the coast,
it's hard to know what hurts the most.
learning how to feel,
it's the break-up for real.
go out to see some friends,
you hope that you won't lose it.
you sit there and pretend -
play adolescent music.
singing to the sea,
you sing the songs that set you free.
