Ten years older than I was
When I brought you down to see
What I thought would make you fall in love
Where an old canal would dream
"Someday, man, I'm gonna be no different than the other rivers.\"
I tried to look at you but I couldn't break the ice
We stood out there for an hour and were freezing
You put your hand around my back
I guess you thought I needed that

I never try to find you
I hope you don't remember me
But I hope you're not alone

You wanted me to take you home
You said you'd rather be alone
I never thought of that
The car was warm and we had wine
But I couldn't find the perfect song
Now I own furniture, a 401, and crow's feet
And I can't even remember the car
Sometimes I can feel your weight when I close my eyes
Seven times I was under you

I never try to find you
I hope you don't remember me
But I hope you're not alone
And I don't wanna know what you're thinking
I'm looking out the window
Just drinking and drinking and drinking

Shallow frame and shaky sticks but I know there's a river in me
Shallow-minded adult tricks but I know there's a river in me

I never try to find you
I hope you don't remember me
But I hope you're not alone
And I don't wanna know what you're thinking
I'm looking out the window
Just sitting there
Sitting down and fucking drinking
