I can't believe I knew what I wanted

lyrics

I had a yellow bike, banana seat, riding down School street and back
My friends all rode skateboards, and we smoked in the back of their houses
I guess it was dangerous, walking the streets at midnight
I mean, that’s what you told me - it must have been true

But now I can’t believe it all was so easy
Wake up in the morning, make the coffee, cross names off the list
And I know it was something to believe in
An echo of wanting, an echo of trying
I open the windows and the air begins to come in

My girlfriend’s name was Katie
We sat on the swings and she told me my future
I fell pretty often but there wasn’t that much to say
My focus turned eastward, over the mountains, into the country
There were trails in the woods
I coughed myself clean, there in your bedroom and

I told you the truth
I told you what happened
It was there in the pool hall
It was there in the pool
Warm nights and cool summers, drive the car to a party
I don’t know how it happened, left my jacket behind

But I didn’t care about the corners of places
And I didn’t care about the music you liked
And I didn’t try to find friends in low places
I can’t believe I knew what I wanted
