lyrics

Crimson

You were smoking with your windows open
Not that it really made a difference then
Whether or not anybody minded
You’d achieved some elevated consciousness

Thin dress in a crimson wagon
Couldn’t keep my eyes from the curls tumbling
Couldn’t slow you down if I wanted
That summer, our summer, was a whirlwind

That summer, our summer, was a whirlwind
Couldn't slow you down if I wanted

Sick of living in our brothers' shadows
But tired of trying like we did to cast our own
You liked a line about a Latin mission
And I liked every single word you said

Stuck in the city where we graduated
Envious of friends who escaped it
I had a primal urge to follow them
As our futures were aligning

That summer, our summer, was a whirlwind
Couldn’t slow me down if you wanted

These days you’ve got a couple new names
Tried to change mine, but it never did take
Couldn’t make it work in the Northwest
Miss the evergreens, the mist and rain

Saw you again in an interim
I pulled away when you touched my hand
Sometimes I can’t help but think of it
What might have happened to us if I hadn’t

That summer, our summer, was a whirlwind
Couldn’t slow it down if we wanted
That summer, our summer, was a whirlwind
We painted this city crimson
