lyrics

They cut the tree down
in front of my house
I watched the whole damn thing
I watched the branches
splinter at the concrete
I watched them haul it away

That tree reminded me
of how things used to be
Most of my memories
have shriveled up
got too weak and fell right off
like all these fuckin' Autumn leaves

I look around town familiar faces abound
I guess no one got too far
The chances they'll never take
can be seen on their face
every night spent at Tulip bars

That town reminded me
my friends are who they'll always be
All of those memories
of parking lots
in the Square
chased by cops
It means the world to me
the world to me...

We tried to stay
18 for good,
but time has shown
we have no say.
Damned if I do
but I have to
be honest:
Our youth is fading away

I didn't grow up,
I just grew so damn tired
I watched my friends go separate ways
and grow uninspired
I said "goodbye"
and turned my back on my little brother
and tried my hardest not to cry
when I left my Mother behind
