​Two Years

This song is by Chew Lips and appears on the album Unicorn (2010).

Followed you down to the beach tonight
Wearing two coats but nothing besides
Forget that we're away from home
Pretend we've got a beach of our own
Always before but never again
In the tall white grass where we ran and slept
I lost my head but the ideas came
Sweating out words like a fevered game
And now that seems it was lost in time
But those two years he was a friend of mine

Summer's so long and it's running away
I lost my chain in the river that day
Watched that fire in the silent dark
I found you crying in the back of your car
In the small hours while the embers glowed
And the light showed drops on the blanket fold
I let you rest from your tired life
Carving that soil with your daddy's knife
And now that seems it was lost in time
Those two years he was a friend of mine

Followed you down to the beach tonight
Followed you down to the beach tonight
Followed you down to the beach tonight
