Girls in short dresses
& Boys named after hurricanes
Talking about the lives they hate
Talking about anything
In faint, wet whispers that come splashing down the hall
All the things you never wanted to hear come bouncing off the walls
They tell each other everything, of their visions and their lies
Boys named after hurricanes
& Girls with pretty eyes.

Girls in their summer clothes
& Boys in their winter slacks
Playing chicken with lit cigarettes
& With speeding Cadillacs.

They try and try to get out
But there is no turning back
In the long, long line of losing time
& Losing faith and contact
In the sun-room of your gambrel
With just your memories intact
Remembering high times, highway signs
Reciting baseball stats
So far away, with distant visions
But oh so vibrant sounds
Of the boys named after hurricanes
& The girls from way uptown.

Girls that skim the back beach roads
With boys with too much to say
Waiting for the tides to change
Or waiting for anything
Trying to find or lose themselves in empty parking lots by the bay
The views offer redemption if you come at this time of day
Blinking through the sun spots as inspiration comes and goes
Boys with too much to say
Unheard girls with words that glow.

But all they had, was all they missed
A noon-swirled plague of loneliness
Some form lives, some form regrets
Friends get high, and friends forget
But with a porch for your daydreams
A bay window for your thoughts
Did the good outweigh the bad?
& Did the gained outweigh the lost?
As you rummage stacks of photo albums
You think, how did it all start
You remember the boys named after hurricanes
& The girls that broke your heart.
