Emmet Swimming – Boston lyrics

Took him away when I was four
Indian wrestling partner
Played cops behind the moving trucks
Ran around, around

And as they drove away
Went back inside to play
Took my toys
Scattered them around, around

(Like yesterday)
Boston's not far away
(Oh, the things we say)
To make life just pass on

(Now it's gone)
So far away
(Oh, the things we say)
Just pretend nothing's wrong

(Now it's gone)
So far away
(Oh, the things we say)
It helps us carry on

(Now it's gone)
So far away
(Oh, the things we say)
To make it through till dawn
It got a little harder

Split up when I was nine
Divvied up the furniture
Went back in the house one last time
Just to walk around, around

What could they say?
"It's not your fault, it'll be okay"
All my toys were
Scattered around, around

(Like yesterday)
Boston's not far away
(Oh, the things we say)
To make life just pass on

(Now it's gone)
So far away
(Oh, the things we say)
Just pretend nothing's wrong

(Now it's gone)
So far away
(Oh, the things we say)
It helps us carry on

(Now it's gone)
So far away
(Oh, the things we say)
To make it through till dawn

Boston's not far away
(Oh, the things we say)
To make life just pass on

(Now it's gone)
So far away
(Oh, the things we say)
To pretend nothing's wrong

(Now it's gone)
So far away
(Oh, the things we say)
It helps us carry on

(Now it's gone)
So far away
(Oh, the things we say)
To make it through till dawn
