Okkervil River – It Was My Season Lyrics


Your dad won't be home
Your sister's out cleaning
You don't need to speak it, because I know
Baby, I know. Step out of your trailer
And into this dark! Shut up about it now
[Verse 5]
I won't say I'm sorry, and how would they know? I said I know
You know I know
That it was our season
[Verse 6]
It's hard to believe it
There isn't a reason
It's only a feeling
When I look back on it now, remember how
Mixed up I got before they got me sorted out
All that heart-in-my-mouth
All that head filled with doubt
It's fading out
I hardly think about it now
[Verse 7]
They say that I'll go to college
And you will stay home
And watch while I'm leaving
And the cold will just creep in
Oh, Jason, I know [Intro]
Tell me a reason
To break things off
Or stop the bleeding
When it's my season
[Verse 1]
My mind was just revving
Your eyes, they went hard
Our parents were freaking
But it was our season
All that time ago
[Interlude]
And if you want to stop our "thing" you'll stop my heart
All this pain inside's still just too sharp
[Verse 2]
What was I thinking? They crossed his wires completely
When they made him fire that gun
[Verse 4]
I'll say to you: to cut it off's to cut me down
If they take me out of school, you out of town
I called a friend, my world at end, my words unwound
I said, "It's crashing down around our heads"
We're dumb. We're dead. It's warm and it's breathing
And it's our season
[Verse 3]
Your dad is half sleeping
But, really, he's gone
Can you hear his VCR weeping? Below the Atari I could feel your heart was just going
We'll meet on the weekend.
