Allie woke up 8 A.M.
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 playin' in my mind
And three and a half minutes
Felt like a lifetime, it felt like a lifetime

And you move like water
I could drown in you
And I fell so deep once, yeah yeah yeah
'Til you pulled me through

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 playin' in my mind, yeah
Three and a half minutes
Felt like a lifetime

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

And 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 playin' in my mind, yeah
And three and a half minutes
Three and a half minutes
Felt like a lifetime
