I could go on talking
Or I could stop
Wring out each memory til I get every drop
Sift through the details
Of the others involved
The true crime would be thinking it’s just one person’s fault

Like an honest signature
On a fake ID
Like the guilty conscience with the innocent plea
You can just ignore it
Put it out of mind
But ain’t it funny how the past won’t ever let something lie

Let’s make a list of all the things the world has put you through
Let’s raise a glass to all the people you’re not speaking to
I don’t know what else that you wanted me to say to you
Things happen
That’s all they ever do

In a different time
On a different floor
I might mourn the loss of who I’m not anymore
So I’m driving up to Oakland for a good look back
And a few revisions to my plan of attack

Let’s make a list of all the things the world has put you through
Let’s raise a glass to all the people you’re not speaking to
I don’t know what else that you wanted me to say to you
Things happen
That’s all they ever do

I think I’ll see Lilly
See where she stands
I can’t help how I feel I don’t think anyone can
Sometimes we’re lovers
Sometimes were friends
Behold the magnetism between two dead ends

Let’s make a list of all the things the world has put you through
Let’s raise a glass to all the people you’re not speaking to
I don’t know what else that you wanted me to say to you
Things happen
That’s all they ever do

Let’s make a list of all the things the world has put you through
(We can qualify the spirit guides you listen to)
Let’s raise a glass to all the people you’re not speaking to
(Or why your mom’s compelled to bronze your baby shoes)
I don’t know what else that you want me to say to you
Things happen
That’s all they ever do
That’s all they ever do
That’s all they ever do
That’s all they ever do
