The party was at a house in the hills The cake was green and white Annie played cards and Sam hung out on the deck By the pool nobody swims in And the next night at the barbecue place The tables were long, they’d give you a number We got bored and had an arm wrestling contest Yeah we got bored and had an arm wrestling contest I guess I remembered that then I remember remembering that now On the way home, driving in the dark We talked about how we’d know who we would marry That’s when I decided not to go to Spain There was too much to do right here There was too much to do right here And I guess I remembered that then I remember remembering that now Yeah I guess I remembered that then I remember remembering that now

Music played over splashes and shouts You sat alone by the fence I didn’t know how to talk to a crying girl “I miss my dog, damn it,” you said I think I said something about how the week would get better You asked, “Are you, like, a computer nerd, or something?” John Mellencamp was singing “Wild Night” on the speakers I found out later that was really a Van Morrison song Found out years later that was really a Van Morrison song

Iowa 02:45
The first girl who played me Twin Peaks Had a nose ring and wore tie-dye The moon was up and the river was high We watched the one with the crazy ending Then stepped outside beneath a red curtain sky The moon was up and the river was high You know, the guy who played Bob was just on the film crew He ended up in a shot and they let it fly The moon was up and the water was high After that, the lodge was ebbing After that, the woods slipped by The moon was up and the river was high The moon was up and the water was high

Cork 01:59
It was probably a Tuesday night A little sunshine and a bit of rain Stopped off to get some groceries But I know we’d decided to make paninis So we bought a loaf of sourdough Took it back to watch kung fu movies Little things were different Something in the light in the morning And the taste of black pepper Little things were different Something in the width of the streets The damp smell in the air The candy at the gas station The ruins off in all the meadows It was probably a Tuesday

Sierra 02:33
Slow in style, quick in sin That’s what he was thinking when he took her in But old movies end the way they will And in the morning when the meadow weeps Mistress Love, she sweetly creeps Through your floorboards, cracks in the windowsill So now sweet Sierra, she’s a wooden ghost But what bothers him the most Ain’t the way her heart’s made out of clay It’s the way she wears that same dress every day So now sweet Sierra, she’s a wooden ghost But what bothers me the most Ain’t the way her heart’s made out of clay It’s the way she keeps that same dress on

We didn’t know everything That’s for sure But the things we did know We sure were sure about

Austin 02:14
It was first real grown-up bicycle that I had ever had Used to ride it all across town Used to ride it to Annie’s place at midnight Down the middle of the street With dark leafy branches hanging above my head In the hot spring night Within a couple months somebody’d stolen it Never was sure where I had it last Maybe it’s still in Austin someplace Used to ride it to Annie’s place at midnight Down the middle of the street With dark leafy branches hanging above my head In the hot spring night

Didn’t know where we were living All we knew is where we’d come from Didn’t know where we’d be come September Where are you sleeping tonight? I think I’ll drag my bag up on the mesa See the light in the morning Light’s on in the kitchen window I think I’ll go and see if there’s anyone there Maybe play some music Didn’t know where we were living All we knew is where we’d come from Didn’t know where we’d be come September
