Twin Falls Lyrics

Christmas Twin Falls, Idaho's her oldest memory
She was only two
It was the first time she felt blue

Cafeteria, Harrison Elementary
Beneath a parachute
I saw her without shoes

7UP I touched her thumb and she knew it was me
Although she couldn't see
Unless of course she peeked

My mom's good she got me out of Twin Falls, Idaho
Before I got too old
You know how that goes

That's where she still was the summer she turned 17
1983
Three weeks after me

Last I heard was she had twins or maybe it was three
Although I've never seen
That don't bother me

this song is a cover of a Built to Spill song. You should check out Built to Spill, because they are truly amazing.

Idaho represent! Im not actually from twin falls, but Boise. I wish Ben Folds would come back here, as he only has played here once, and I couldnt go! That is Idaho's payment for letting him write a song about one of its towns. And, atari-cait is right Built to Spill kicks ass, and they are from Boise.

An error occured.

what ive always gotten from this song is that hes remembering someone he knew, but not very well, when he was younger, and hes wondering what happened to her but not really caring. i love that he has specific details (like playing heads up 7up with her) but that its still pretty vague. its like a real memory.

makes me think of my childhood.

Im disappointed to learn this was a cover. :\ I was hoping us Idahoans would have another star to feel proud of. :( Oh well. I still love this song. It's so sad in ways. Makes me think of my first grade crush.

phmmm Built to Spill kicks Ben Folds Fives ass anyday. I am from Rigby Idaho. I think they kind of messed up in the first line but I am not sure if they were trying to type something else. It should be typed like "Christmas Twin Falls Idaho is her oldest memory" the is is more subsituted for an s sound but they could lose a few ,s and 's here and there. But when he says that line it means that She was in Twin Fills on Christmas. That was her first memory. Having christmas in Twin Falls. You probably all understood that but some of the replies here made it seem like a few of you didnt.
