Midnight crashes all around, but they drown out the sound. They compliment my dress; they're all impressed. And everyone knows everyone, exactly like you're counting on. The conversation swallows me and you slip by between the words they say. Guest room. I traced your trail upstairs, but I wasn't quite prepared to face this now. You planned this out. Your parents dragged me back from school to ease the pain they're dealing you. They push you out, you pull me in. It's just the way it's always been today. She pointed at a car in the parking lot. I couldn't tell if she was joking. Eyes wide open as your laughter fades. You're staring through me all the way. All the way across the ocean, just to talk you out of this. Now all the weight is on my shoulders, and I can't walk away. I'm locked in if we go all the way. Morning. I'm not used to the time. I'm lagged out of my mind. You tiptoe through the hall. I've got a call, and it's the school; the play's been cast. They've got me playing Rosencrantz. And as disappointment swallows me, you say you know just what I need today. She pointed at a car in the parking lot. I couldn't tell if she was joking. She looked at me as if to say she thought we could go all the way. Chorus.
