lyrics

Short shift and no luck
In this town we claim to like the best

Is that your sister?
God, how she's growing
I hope you've looked out
For all I couldn't

And those I wouldn't
How’s your mother?
Those I wanted
I couldn't bother

Save us last

For all your faults
I still love you best
Wash away some sin
And you clean up well

With a new girlfriend
And some serious debt
A night in your sublet
And I still feel well

The day I left
I would pay to forget
The River blasting
Out the stereo cassette

Short shift and no luck
In this town we claim to like the best

Burning with desire
God how it's frozen
The things that one want
Do they feel chosen?

Could there be someone here
In this room?
A hand on mine
Guiding the mouse
Tracing an electronic bloodline

A ghostly glow
I catch someone in the screen
I didn’t know I wanted them
So now I live in between

Save us last
For all your faults
I still love you best
Wash away some sin
I can hardly tell

All kids can get along
At the beach
But not for long

Let us lay it bare
The places
We have been

It’s not the time
But it’s growing near

The way towards
The weather
The news, the team, and the year

The night is saved by dark
The dark goes to the dawn
Forever breathes the light
