The Hold Steady – Killer Parties lyrics

If they ask about Charlemagne.
Be polite and say something vague.
Like another lover lost to the restaurant raids.
If they ask why we left in the first place.
Say we were young and we were so in love.
I guess we just needed space.
We heard about this place they called the United States.
We found out Virginia really is for the lovers.
Philly is full of friendly friends that will love you like a brother.
Pensacola parties hard with poppers pills and Pepsi.
Ybor city is tres speedy but they throw such killer parties.
Killer parties almost killed me.

If she says we partied then I'm pretty sure we partied.
I really don't remember.
I remember we departed from our bodies.
We woke up in Ybor city.
