Song Lyrics

Allie woke up 8AM, Graduation day

Got into a car, crashed along the way

And we arrived late to the wake, stole the urn while they looked away

And drove to the beach

`cause I knew you`d want it that way

And you were standing

On the hood of the car

Singing out loud

When the sun came up

And I know I wasn`t right

But it felt so good

And your mother didn`t mind

Like I thought she would

And that R.E.M song was playing in my mind

And three and a half minutes

Felt like a lifetime

(pause)

Felt like a lifetime

(pause)

And you move like water

Yeeeeeeeah!

I could drown in you

And I fell so deep once

Yeeeeeeeah!

`Till you pulled me through

Ah Aaaaaaa

You would tell me, "No one is allowed to be so proud, they never reach out, when they`re giving up"

And I know I wasn`t right

But it felt so good

And your mother didn`t mind

Like I thought she would

And that R.E.M song was playing in my mind, yeeeah

three and a half minutes

Felt like a lifetime

(transition to bridge)

Are you sitting in the lights?

Or combing your hair again?

And talking in rhymes?

Are you standing in the lights?

When I got home, heard the phone, your parents had arrived

You know your dad set his jaw, your mom just smiled and sighed

(And you move like water)

But they left soon, and I went to my room

Played that disc that you`d given me

You know I shut my eyes

I swear I could hear the sea

We were standing

On the hood of your car

Singing out loud when the sun came up

And I know I wasn`t right,

But it felt so good.

And your mother didn`t mind,

Like I thought she would.

And that R.E.M song was playing in my mind, yeeah

Three and a half minutes

Three and a half minutes

Felt like a lifetime
