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
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.
