tire swing - kimya dawson

I took the polaroid down in my room
I'm pretty sure you have a new girlfriend
It's not as if I don't like you
It just makes me sad whenever I see it

Coz I like to be gone most of the time
And you like to be home most of the time
If I stay in one place I lose my mind
I'm a pretty impossible lady to be with

Joey never met a bike that he didn't wanna ride
And I never met a Toby that I didn't like
Scotty liked all the books that I recomended
and even if he didn't, I wouldn't be offended

I had a dream that I had to drive to Madison
To deliver a painting for some silly reason
I took a wrong turn and ended up Michigan
Paul...took me to the giant tire swing
Gave me a push and he started singing
I sang along while I was swinging
The sound of our voices made us forget everything
That had ever hurt our feelings


Now I'm home for less than 24 hours
That's hardly time to take a shower,
Hug my family and take your picture off the wall
Check my email write a song and make a few phone calls
Before it's time to leave again
I got one hand on the steering wheel one waving out the window
If I'm a spinster for the rest of my life
My arms will keep me warm for the rest of my life
