Kiernan McMullan – That Afternoon lyrics

I said "how'd you get to be so smart?"
She said "I guess I'm just not an uptight bastard, and to quote someone a little bit great, there's far more to life than making it move faster"
I said "Where'd you learn that?"
She said "In School"
Do you know who it is
Yea it's Ghandi you fool
Man I thought I had it figured out
But that little girl made my world crash down
That Afternoon

Your personality is inspiring
Making me look down on myself
For being so overwhelming with the problems of someone else
You try to take the time to comfort
To ease and calm my life
But at least once a year you manage to make me realise that I'm not always right

You're falling down, your so melodramatic
Always heavy on my mind
I'm run down cause I never take my time

I said "how'd you get to be so smart?"
She said "I guess I'm just not an uptight bastard, and to quote someone a little bit great, there's far more to life than making it move faster"
I said "Where'd you learn that?"
She said "In School"
Do you know who it is
Yea it's Ghandi you fool
Man I thought I had it figured out
But that little girl made my world crash down
That Afternoon

Two packs a day I'd say you've got a problem on your hands
You never compensate and you know exactly how to stand
And if I said that I didn't respect you
I would be lying to you face
So small but yet so full of love
That doesn't compromise when I say

You're falling down, your so melodramatic
Always heavy on my mind
I'm run down cause I never take my time

I said "how'd you get to be so smart?"
She said "I guess I'm just not an uptight bastard, and to quote someone a little bit great, there's far more to life than making it move faster"
I said "Where'd you learn that?"
She said "In School"
Do you know who it is
Yea it's Ghandi you fool
Man I thought I had it figured out
But that little girl made my world crash down
That Afternoon

I said "how'd you get to be so smart?"
She said "I guess I'm just not an uptight bastard, and to quote someone a little bit great, there's far more to life than making it move faster"
I said "Where'd you learn that?"
She said "In School"
Do you know who it is
Yea it's Ghandi you fool
Man I thought I had it figured out
But that little girl made my world crash down
That Afternoon
