I am an old song that you once knew
You can’t remember me for the life of you
And now they're singing you verses that are new
And you are longing for just to hear the chorus

We fell asleep on a box of milk duds
They melted into the clubhouse cushions
I’ve never loved another person
More than I loved you when I woke that morning

You can try to relax or plan your attack
When you get back to Brooklyn, get back to Brooklyn
You can close your eyes for a moment at a time
But in the dark they’ll stay open, always stay open

My spine gets the most sun when I’m lying on my back
With my brains dripping down into the palms of my hands
I’m always misplacing my wandering mind
It takes the metro, it’s never on time

And now I’m trying to remember how to climb the stairs
How to tie my shoes and how to braid my hair
I can’t recall my own name or even why I care
All I know is my eyes are the bee and your body is the bear now

We fell asleep on a box of milk duds
They melted into the clubhouse cushions
I’ve never loved another person
More than I loved you, more than I loved you

Now I’m an old song that you once knew
You can’t remember me for the life of you
But I hope you find joy in all the things you do
And in these songs we sing that are sung solely for you
