The first time I saw you, you worked selling hot dogs
And stealing your mom's VCR
You sold your Nintendo for a shitty drum set
That you sold for a shittier car

I remember you hitting your girlfriend once or twice
When she got in your face
You'd come sell us weed or just watch TV
She'd sit in your Chevy and wait

The first time I saw you, you worked at the Lakeview
With that guy with those bad tattoos
Someone had broken your heart and you worked it out
Fucking the regular crew

Your smile was amazing, your apartment was tiny
Your arms and your back were all bruised
Sometimes you wore glasses that you didn't like
Over eyes that were sparkly blue

Howdy stranger, how ya been?
A million distant memories of a million distant friends

The last time I saw you, we split a pitcher or two
At some hillbilly bar
Your heart was all shattered, your hair was all greasy
And long and your hands were all hard

I remember saying to dump your girlfriend
She was making both of us sick
It's not a lot, but it's what I got
It's harder and harder to stick to the script

It's harder these days
It gets harder to stay

    General Commentthis is one of the best Falcon songs off that CD, I love the "last time I saw you we split a pitcher or two at a hillbilly bar" part. It's so close to home living in Wisconsin.
