Josh Warren – Eighth Graders And Harbor Boats lyrics

I saw a girl from across the room
Her eyes met mine and what could I do?
I walked over to her, gave a smile and said,
"Would you like to dance?" and she nodded her head.
So we danced all night and I held her 'til dawn
Felt like just me and her until the sun came up
I asked her If she needed a ride
"Of course," she said and calmly replied:
She was only fourteen.

Another night, another girl
Before she lets her hair unfurl
My latest greatest mistake without attraction
The shirt comes off, the heat is on
Exactly like the other ones
Isn't there somebody else out there to distract me?

For a while or at least for longer than an evening
All the while deja vu sets in and now I'm screaming


Menagerie, a tragedy
Call it what you will
I'll say with no god as my witness
I'd leave it all behind
For just one week with a stable mind
A tapestry of blasphemy
Lying on my bed
Make-up stained still smelling like perfume
To me these sheets still tell of her too well

Variety's the spice
But the staple is stability
My palette's satisfied, my stomachs empty
I can't afford to lose another
Meal to apathy and smother
This opportunity with reparte

For a while or at least for longer than an evening
All the while deja vu sets in and now I'm screaming
