lyrics

In our Junior year, we dropped out of college
Moved into a van with a bed in the back
Packed it up full of drugs, whiskey, and Kerouac
Hit the road and said we’re never comin’ back
And off we go
We’re leavin’ Ohio and headin’ out West
By the time we hit Wyoming
Our friendship was all but dead
If you forgive me for being dismissive of your worldview
Then I’ll forgive you for tryin’ to kill me in the Black Hills
We’ve let a lot of time and distance come between us
But I sure do miss the time we used to kill

I met you at a party in somebody’s basement
You were wearing a lace dress and a funeral hat
I’d never met anybody like you before
We stayed up all night talkin’ movies and politics
And we fell in love
But you said love and sex did not equate
And nine months later
Our love turned into hate
If you’ll forgive me for being a little too Midwestern
Then I’ll forgive you for tryin’ to sleep with all of our friends
We’ve let a lot of time and distance come between us
But I sure do miss the time we used to kill

To everyone I’ve ever met along this journey
You’ve all been so important in your own way
We’ve let a lot of time and distance come between us
You see, I used to think life would go on day after day…

about

Aaron Semer Seattle, Washington

"Semer draws from the tradition of the best singer/songwriters in that he can write about any variety of topics and make it all seem too easy. With Cape Disappointment, he deserves a seat at the table alongside Jeff Tweedy, Steve Earle, Warren Zevon, and John Prine. He's that good." - PopMatters ... more
