we were deadbeats in the summer

bummin' cigs and spillin' drinks 

on the floor

she painted watercolors

wrote her prose about

the moon and the shore

we opened up and

we made love and

spent the month

together in bed

she filled my head...


i could not shake the feeling

that i'd never be alone again


she had me wrapped around her finger

we had figured out what bodies

were for

but i was colder in the winter

she got splinters when she

knocked on the door

on a snowy day

i broke away and

left her while

she slept in our bed

it filled my head


(i was frightened you were tightening your grip)

all the while...


i could not shake the feeling (could not shake the oh)

that we'd never be alone again

i could not shake the feeling (could not shake the)

that we'd never be alone again

i could not shake the feeling (could not shake the oh)

that we'd never be alone again

i could not shake the feeling (could not shake the oh)


i saw her in the springtime

she was walking with a friend of a friend

she told she was happy

and her smile's been attacking me since


'cause i can't shake the feeling

that she'll never be alone

'cause i can't shake the feeling

she'll never be alone again
