Your middle finger was clutching my thumb through the park and over macdougal.
The torches were blazing about our street and just down from the sky.
Casey stepped with Anna off the curb.
His shoes are clogs, did you see?
They dipped in that puddle, the one catching green.
They were tripping up and slipping around, singing 'Rosalita come out tonight' and oh I wanted to pull you down.
roll on top of me, baby. just roll.
we'll wreck our clothes.
we'll scrape our knees.
we'll taste the scabs.
you, sweet, are worth these next four months until I bail out and kiss behind your ears, drive off in the van.
oh my god, I think I'm dying in this car seat, where I'll spend through winter.

    General CommentI think this song is so sweet. It makes me think of when I was kid playing outside with the boy I had a crush on. But then as the song goes on it reminds me of when they grew up and he was leaving. They were in love. Other people might think theres a different meaning but that's what I think it means. This song definatly makes you think about love.

    General CommentThis song means so much. This is my favourite STD song by far. It's just so in depth. Definitely about making love and letting it grow before he heads out on tour. He doesn't think he'll be able to make it without seeing her for four months. Awww...it's soo sweet. STD is amazing. Chris, you are amazing...the voice...ahh..
