​How I Spent My Summer Vacation

This song is by The Ataris and appears on the split album Let It Burn (2000) by ​The Ataris and ​Useless ID and on the album End Is Forever (2001).

Got out of bed today.
I'm alive, what can I say?
I'm really happy to be
Somewhere with someone who makes me happy

I took the bus downtown.
All day long I walked around.
I looked at all the sights
And thought about how lucky I am now.

I was sick of feeling down
So I gave it all away.
2000 miles from all I know.
And so much better off today.
I'm still waiting for the world
To come crashing down again.
And I'm still waiting for someone
To call me up and tell me You're dead.
Sometimes I wonder what was going through your head.
I don't know, But I won't go there again.

You make me smile so wide
When I look into your eyes
When you're not around
You know you're somewhere stuck inside my mind.

So here I am today
I was lost for 20 years
I found clarity
The day I took a chance
And moved away

I was sick of feeling down
So I gave it all away.
2000 miles from all I know.
And so much better off today.

But I'm still waiting for the world
To come crashing down again.
I'm still waiting for someone
To call me up and tell me You're dead.
And sometimes I wonder what was going through your head.

I don't know,
But I won't go there again
No I won't go there again
