It Was My Season

This song is by Okkervil River and appears on the album The Silver Gymnasium (2013).

Original video
Tell me a reason
To break things off
Or stop the bleeding
When it's my season

My mind was just revving
Your eyes they went hard
Our parents were freaking
But it was our season
All that time ago

And if you want to stop our "thing" you'll stop my heart
All this pain inside's still just too sharp
What was I thinking?

Step out of your trailer
And into this dark
It's warm and it's breathing
And it's our season

Your dad is half sleeping
But really he's gone
Can you hear his VCR weeping?
They crossed his wires completely
When they made him fire that gun

I say to you, to cut it off's to cut me down
If they take me out of school, you out of town
I called a friend, my world at end, my words unwound
I said, "It's crashing down around our heads
We're dumb, we're dead. Shut up about it now."

I won't say I'm sorry
And how would they know?
Below the Atari
Well, I could feel your heart was just going

We'll meet on the weekend
Your dad won't be home
Your sister's out cleaning
You don't need to speak it

Because I know
Baby, I know
I said I know
You know I know

I know (that it was our season)
Baby, I know (it's hard to believe it)
I said I know (there isn't a reason)
You know I know (it's only a feeling)

Well, I look back on it now
Remember how (there isn't a reason)
Mixed up I got (it's only a feeling)
Before they got me sorted out

All that heart-in-my-mouth (that it was our season)
All that head-filled-with-doubt (there isn't a reason)
It's fading out (it's only a feeling)
I hardly think about it now

They say that I'll go to college
And you will stay home
And watch while I'm leaving
The cold will just creep in
Oh, Jason, I know
