New single for Summer of 2015. It's all I've got this year!


Outdoor Summer concerts
hit me right where my heart hurts.
There's a girl in Summer clothes and
I'm going to go where ever she goes.
I'll drive fast for hours
for the chance to bring her flowers.
Party hard with townies
and the local rock band groupies.
I think they see right through me.

I'm drunk from what I'm thinking.
But it's pretty cute how she only smokes when she's been drinking.

Walking around lonely
listening to phonies.
They did pretty good on that Queen song
until the singer got the words wrong.
It's hard to watch a cover band
act like they own the bandstand.
What am I even doing here
when she's already made herself perfectly clear?
I should probably disappear.

I don't know what I've been thinking.
This wouldn't have been fun even back when I was still drinking.
And yeah, it's alright to watch her dance around at a club show
but I'd be just as happy listening to Abbey Road on her stereo
or maybe The White Album in mono.

I can't help but thinking
about all of the reasons I had to quit drinking.
Stuff like this remains at the very top of the list.
I should probably be getting on the road back home to St. Louis.
'Cause I don't think I can do this.
