​Our Days In Kansas

This song is by Tullycraft.

Did you mean what you said when you told me you missed us
Without reservation, without plans for Christmas
First part was right, the rest wasn't true
The same goes for me and the same goes for you

Packed my things for the month but it's not necessary
I told you I'd stay but it's just temporary
Like swastika girls who fell back on their looks
We relied on the tricks and the recycled hooks

Did you want a response or just someone to edit?
It's not what you said, it's the way that you said it
The longshoreman's daughter, when they spelled her name
Found three chords of brilliance and rode them to fame, all alone

Pep up the formula tonight [ah-oh ah-oh]
You're not obliged to do us favors [ah-oh ah-oh]
Disenchanted hearts unite [ah-ah-ah-oh]
When you and I were candy ravers [ah-ah-ah]

Krushchev's Ekranoplan had failed [ah-oh ah-oh]
Those weeks in August never seem fair [ah-oh ah-oh]
Our love is left to sink or sail [ah-ah-ah-oh]
You cut the summer blonde from your hair [ah-ah-ah]

A little time is all I need [ah-oh ah-oh]
A disco bloodbath for the ages [ah-oh ah-oh]
The patience left to let it bleed [ah-ah-ah-oh]
And a quill to fill the pages [ah-ah-ah]

Dark streets set ablaze
And all roads lead to maybe
Sometimes I think about those days
Sometimes I wish we'd kept the baby
I don't know how things could have changed, I've been waiting

Our days in Kansas wouldn't last [ah-oh ah-oh]
I never learned the KU fight song [ah-oh ah-oh]
Exchanging poisons from the past [ah-ah-ah-oh]
I hadn't heard from you in so long [ah-ah-ah]

And if the moonlight kills the flame [ah-oh ah-oh]
With all the moments we were meant to [ah-oh ah-oh]
You know I'll tell the world your name [ah-ah-ah-oh]
I couldn't let the world forget you [ah-ah-ah]

Things were so much easier back in 1993
I loved you for the first time on that day
