St. Vincent – Teenage Talk lyrics

[Verse 1]
Katie kept the list of times
Now that she had really done it, done it
So we swarmed like flies
Pretending that we weren't terrified to

[Verse 2]
We snuck out that night
Rolled the Chrysler down the driveway
But once we were inside
Couldn't figure out where we were off to

[Hook]
That was before we had made any terrible mistakes

[Verse 3]
Well that's just teenage talk
Pinky swear that you won't go changing
Drank so much that night
Carved the state of Texas in our forearms

[Verse 4]
You know I never loved you more
Than when we were hiding from those sirens
Oh, we laughed so hard
Threw up in your mother's azaleas

[Hook]
That was before we had made any terrible mistakes
That was before we had made any terrible mistakes

[Bridge]
Well that's just teenage talk
I don't think the past is better, better
Just 'cause it's cased in glass
Protecting us from our now and later

You know I never loved you more
Than when we were running from those sirens
Drank so much that night
Carved the state of Texas in our forearms

[Outro]
How do you see me now?
Now that I'm a little bit older, older
Never mind the albatross
Smoldering on my shoulder, shoulder, shoulder, shoulder
