I must have been sleeping, I must have been drinking,
I haven't been dreaming about you for years.
There was a sharp turn and a sunburn
I was too cool for high school that year.
That year

Must have have been New Year's
No one invited you, you took things too far
But I missed you and your antics.
You were lonesome and blue-eyed and so special to us.

You should have taken a long break
Instead of a long drop from a high place.
Ten years I never spoke your name.
Now it feels good to say it.
You're my friend again.

Said he forgave you, I said I hated you,
He was the bigger man, I was sixteen.
All the innocence it took for you to finally make the year book.
That year, that year.

You could have taken some time away
Instead of a long drop, instead of a leap of faith,
Ten years I never spoke your name.
Now it feels good to say that you're my friend again.
You're my friend again.

I was angry, I was a baptist, I was a daughter, I was wrong.
