The Wonder Years – Woke Up Older lyrics
You've got lunch with your sister tomorrow
So we can't be up late
You don't mind if I sleep in
But then I've gotta' pack my things
So I stacked a Bukowski novel on a Blacklisted lp
And this time what it looked like was just what it proved to be
You said you needed a stiff drink to take your mind off things

Hey Jess, I woke up older
Carrying two years in the bags under my eyes
Hey Jess, I watched you wake up and get dressed
You left the room, receded like my hairline

I've been avoiding Rittenhouse like the plague
'Cause I just can't handle seeing you today
You made this house into a home
Now, I'm a stranger on my street
And as I turned to leave
I caught myself in the mirror to see I aged a year this week
I left a note upon your bed that said
"Hey, thanks again for everything you did."

Hey Jess, I woke up older
Carrying two years in the bags under my eyes
Hey Jess, I watched you wake up and get dressed
You left the room, receded like my hairline

When John introduced Woke Up New in St. Augustine
I knew I wasn't alone
When I woke up here without you
There was nothing to do, but pack up and go home

Hey Jess, I woke up older
Carrying two years in the bags under my eyes

Hey Jess, I woke up older
Carrying two years in the bags under my eyes
Hey Jess, I watched you wake up and get dressed
You left the room, receded like my
Left the room, receded like my
Left the room, receded like my hairline
