The oldest song on the album. Originally written for another project


It's been a long time
and we both know New England snow
doesn't grow much around these parts,
and neither do you.

I got a memory,
of the afternoon light
floating through me
and easing my mind,
But when I face you
and see your lips,
I'm convinced it'll only last a little while

(Every time I breath, I hope you come back to me)

I'm just sitting in Roh's,
Just sniffing the coffee
Just waking the sent of...

You're just in some apartment,
Just watching a movie,
Just honing your plight-less (ruse)

I don't think I've got the time to call you tonight

So where will you be,
When I'm no longer seventeen?
Standing out drunk by the liberty bell,
Too far to hear me yell
