TREE FORTS AND HOCKEY STICKS

lyrics

I don't want to be one of those people who goes
looking for attention and starts to cry
won't pretend that I even knew you the last time we spoke
was when I said good bye to everyone who belonged in my past
at only twelve years of age all the same i just want you to know
how sorry I am that it ended this way.

and It's 5am I've been up all night drinking just thinking
about when my time will come
don't want to wait until it's all over before I see the world

I remember carving our initials in a tree, for a time i really liked you
even though it was young and naive it seemed like the right thing to do
there was a tree fort in your neighbours back yard,
we all had a great war, pine cones as ammo we were under attack
you and i both hit the floor

and It's 5am I've been up all night drinking just thinking
about when my time will come
don't want to wait until it's all over before I see the world

It's so hard to believe I remember these things,
hidden in the back of my mind
the truth about memories is they're never lost
they just get harder to find

and It's 5am I've been up all night drinking just thinking
about when my time will come
don't want to wait until it's all over before I see the world
