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

chorus:
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


chorus

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

chorus
