Smoking weed with you
In the leaves, in the fall
In the yard with your dog, till the winter came

I smoke with you, ‘cause you’ve taught me to
To pass the time, in your living room
And I want it with you, so you’ll show me
How you do find, me amusing, amusing
Before your shift

Talking with you, in your bed I saw
Your face turn red when I said what I want
Getting you to talk, to hear your ideas
So shy to my friends, even shy to me
And I do believe in what you tell me
How you do find me amusing, amusing?
Before your shift

Same thing today, the leaves changed again
In your yard, your room
No reason to leave here soon.

    My InterpretationHer boyfriend is content with things the way they are: they hang out before he goes to work, get high together, and hook up... but she is looking for a deeper connection. When she attempts to confront this issue, he only recoils further. It seems like she isn't even really a pot smoker ('cause you taught me to) but instead she is getting high because she knows that's the only way she'll be able to spend this time with him. This is interesting because marijuana often has the effect of making people more introspective and less in touch with their surroundings, thus distancing the boyfriend further from her psychologically. The last stanza implies that as a drug user, the boyfriend feels no need to leave this space that they share, and she is coming to accept that this is the only side of him that she will know.
