lyrics

We were only 17. Curled up in the backseats of my mother’s ‘83. Of that old Buick Century. You said we’d always leave. That the city would set us free, but the devil always eats the boys from young families.Boy your bones are shaking cold and hard in that winter sun. You go on and on and on. Thought you’d never rest but that graveyard had other bets. Well you’re always wrong and now you’re gone, but you go on.We were only 17. Left our lives in those backseats of our mother’s ‘83. That old Buick Century. We said we’d always leave. But the city takes what it needs while we sleep. Like that old Buick Century. Boy your bones are shaking cold and hard in that winter sun. You go on and on and on. Thought you’d never rest but that graveyard had other bets. Well you’re always wrong and now you’re gone, but you go on. I hear you coming around now. Its all upside, you swear, you know you left. All your other friends paid all your other debts because you prayed for what you need. You’re wicker man on the promenade. You always said you’d set her free. But now you can’t call what you couldn’t keep.
