​Thrift Store Chair

This song is by Everclear and appears on the album Songs From An American Movie Vol. One - Learning How To Smile (2000).

Original video
Baby, go to bed and put out the light
Ooh, we both know if we talk anymore
We're going to end up in a great big fight

You can have your way again
Yeah, you believe what you want to believe
You can walk all over me tomorrow
But tonight, can we both just pretend to sleep

I think we're headed for a big fall
Think we're headed for a bad time
(Yeah, I'm going to go downstairs
And sit in that chair you like)

Gonna put a John Prine record on
I think we need to slow it down for a while

Yeah, I wish we had never bought a king size bed
Yeah, the only damn thing that it's ever been good for
Is plenty room for the real good sex

I lay in bed in the dark and all that I can see
Yes, is the distance that grows between us
Now you seem so far from me

I think we are headed for a real big fall
Yes, we're headed for a bad time

(I'm going to go downstairs
I'm going to sit by myself
All alone in the middle of the night)

I'm going to put a John Prine record on
I think we need to slow down for a while
(I'm going to go downstairs
Smoke cigarettes in that thrift store chair you like)
I'm going to put a John Prine record on
Yeah, we need to slow down for a while (oh yeah)

We need to slow down for a while (oh yeah)
We need to slow down for a while
For a while, for a while
Yeah, we need to slow it down for a while
