Today I waited, I waited in line to have my tooth removed
By a student, a student three years into dental school
They must have left some, left some chemicals in my gums
'Cause from time to time, from time to time my head still feels numb

On the way I passed the room where we sat
With the window view behind you
That I pretended to be staring through when I was really looking at you

Like a dandelion, a dandelion turns yellow to white
I felt it coming like a subway wind that blew you into flight

Tradewinds like me try their very best
But you still floated from east to west
Now you're a planted seed in a field by the sea
While you're still growing next to me
Yeah you're still growing next to me

It's just the way we from Michigan tend to, tend to speak
Our S's long as the rope I bent down and tied around my own feet
I won't sink too deep

On the way I passed the room where we sat
With the window view behind you
That I pretended to be staring through when I was really looking at you
When I was really looking at you
Yeah I was, really looking at you
