lyrics

Tattoos and bruises, two burning fuses
Hot as the sun, loud as a gun
for all those years

Drinking at dive bars, rode bikes never had a car
It was alright just getting by
When you were near

I’m trying to forget
I try my very best
I try

You kept your wallet in your back left pocket
Denim and steel, ain’t gonna feel
Like it did back then
Drop another quarter in so I can hear that record spin
My favorite song, used to sing along
Again and again

I’m trying to forget
I try my very best
I try

A thousand dimes in a mason jar
Wondered what you were saving for
Too young to see that you’d never be my only man
Thinking about when you left that day
There wasn’t anything I could say
That would bring us back to what we had
I understand

I’m trying to forget
I try my very best
I try

I’m trying to forget
I try my very best
I try

Tattoos and bruises, like two lit fuses
Burned like the sun, loud as a gun
for all those years

Drinking at dive bars, rode bikes never had a car
Only a blur the way that we were all those years
Only a blur the way we were all those years
