lived in a house
?? on a wall
right next to my sisters
who lived down the hall
at night we would knock
on the wall that we shared
sleep head to head
i miss being there

oh, oh, oh, this is what i used to know
oh, oh, oh, this is what i used to know

my piano teacher
she lived next door
we tried and failed to make her fudge when she got sick
i quit takin lessons cause i got bored
we used to like her son but he turned out to be a dick

oh, oh, oh, this is what i used to know
oh, oh, oh, this is what i used to know

i snuck out once
but it wasn't worth the worry
i went down the street
to meet a boy who wasn't good enough for me

my dad had a mustache
that he let me shave
he thought he could help us
he just wanted to save us from each other
cause we had gone mad
forgotten the good things
forgot what we had

oh, oh, oh, this is what i used to know
oh, oh, oh, this is what i used to know

    General CommentI saw Julia live the other night and she explained two of the references in this song- the first being the piano teacher's son is/was in a screamo (I think) band that wrote a mean song about her. The second story she told was about her father not letting her go to a party when she was twelve. She said she insisted that he didn't trust her, and to prove that he did her let her shave his mustache.
