The Hold Steady – Modesto Is Not That Sweet lyrics

I can't believe I was worried about hurting you. I should have kicked it with your cousin when I had the opportunity.
I was at some party and she said she had to talk to me and then she didn't say anything. I can't believe I worried about hurting you while you were banging around the bars trying to scratch up something new. You left me fifty bucks and nothing much to do but think about getting back at you.

I heard that you've been back around the neighborhood. You might be still strung out but you still look pretty good.
I heard that kid from california turned out to be an asshole. I think I could have told you. You left with burning bridges but you never saw the beach. You had stars in your eyes but modesto's not that sweet. When you only know one guy and he disappears for days at time.

I can't believe I was worried about hurting you. I should have kicked it with your cousin when I had the opportunity.
I was at some party and she said she had to talk to me. She didn't say much of anything.
