"Jacket" as written by and Liam James Fray....
When you borrowed it that night
You wore my jacket for the last time
The jacket used to be our history
Now its only covered with your cold memory

So much time I spent with you now
Now all that's left are tears from falling off your bed
Marks made by your sleeping head
Lipstick from a drunken kiss
Ice cream stains that now I miss

I read the band names on the clothes
GBH, Black Flag and Dr. Know
I saw the Devo patch on your sleeve
And you were in my jacket without me

So much time I spent with you now
Now all that's left are tears from falling off your bed
Marks made by your sleeping head
Lipstick from a drunken kiss
Ice cream stains that now I miss

Blood from when you scraped your cheek
That dirt from walking by the creek
Coffee spilled on our first date
I used to let you wear it in the rain

So much time I spent with you girl
Now all that's left are tears from falling off your bed
Marks made by your sleeping head
Lipstick from a drunken kiss

Ice cream stains that now I miss
You used to wear it in the rain

    General Commenti love it when NH takes a break from the jokes and does the serious songs. and i love the melody in this. Nerf Herder is way too underappreciated.

    General CommentI'm glad I finally looked at the lyrics to this classic.
    I always thought he said "blood from when you scraped your teeth" and my initial reaction was "scraped your teeth on WHAT?" O_O

    great song, i'm sure many of you out there have had a clothing item that you cherished and gave to an (now) ex...ohh the memories.
