about

Written in room 127, National Hotel, Block Island, RI.

lyrics

It's the summer of vodka, It's the season of fear
I've got nothing left to say that anybody needs to hear
you want to be my girlfriend, well that gets pretty dark
I'm a broken down roller coaster in an empty amusement park

Chorus
So come up behind me, and then go around
don't wait for me, I'm only gonna slow you down

There are tourist out on Water Street and they spill into the bars
they spill their drinks on me dancing under the stars
I keep a room in the back, where I go to be alone
I turn off my head and I don't answer the phone

Chorus

You want to laugh, I'll keep you up all night
But don't expect me to remember what happened come the morning light
When I see you again, tell me what did we do
and I'll tell you if any part of your story rings true

Chorus

it's a long ride and I want you to make it to town
but don't wait for me, I'm only going to slow you down.
