Under the bridge when we were both fourteen
We smoked a cigarette and kissed under a tree
I knew as much about life as I do now
But didn't know for every ride you gotta pay

I made a promise I would stay until the spring
Then the rivers rose and everything was changed
It was changed
And it was changed

We walked like balance beams the railroad tracks for miles
We skipped through forests stripping leaves off of the trees
Found an old TV in an empty river bed
You said you'd buy me one someday full of dead

We tried to sing every good song that we knew
And when the words were gone we screamed 'till we were through
And it was fun
And it was fun

Oh God
And it's been almost five years
Oh God
I don't even know where you are now
Oh God, oh God
