Good gracious, Abbey, what happened to you?
Emo eyelashes, that's how I knew ya
Sorry for asking, but we were so close
Our rebellious passion, guess it outgrew ya

So now you're on your way to your new job in the city,
You got a degree you say, cause there's bills to pay, of course.

And you don't like rock and roll, are you serious?
Too cool for the scene, are you serious?
Well, new friends come and go, are you serious?
Abbey, what happened?
Wake up your napping

When we were younger, our dreams were going
To California, to see the ocean
We saved our money, we quit our jobs
When they said “you're crazy, ” we said “I'll show ya.”

So now you're on your way to your new job in the city,
You got a degree you say, cause there's bills to pay, of course.

And you don't like rock and roll, are you serious?
You're too cool for the scene, are you serious?
Well, new friends come and go, are you serious?
Abbey, what happened?
Wake up your napping

You don't go to the shows, are you serious?
New hair, different clothes, are you serious?
Your tattoos, covered up, are you serious?
Abbey, what happened?
You were my best friend.

So while you're on your way to your new job in the city
It's easy to see that you still miss the way it was

And you don't like rock and roll, are you serious?
You're too cool for the scene, are you serious?
Well, new friends come and go, are you serious?
Abbey, what happened?
Wake up your napping.

You don't go to the shows, are you serious?
New hair, different clothes, are you serious?
Your tattoos, covered up, are you serious?
Abbey, what happened?
You were my best friend.
You don't like rock and roll
You're too cool for the scene
Well, new friends come and go
Abbey, what happened?
Wake up your napping

You don't go to the shows, are you serious?
New hair, different clothes, are you serious?
Your tattoos, covered up, are you serious?
Abbey, what happened?
You were my best friend.
Good gracious, Abbey, so good to see ya.
She walks off laughing, just like she used to.
