Social Development Dance Lyrics

by Pete Yorn

i remember the first time i saw you
you were drifting down Crouse Ave
you looked like a hot-country-Vermont
though my eyes were never that good
your head seemed to hold itself up high
on that long thin neck of yours
you glanced back although we never had passed
you lit a cigarette and smiled
and when we kissed it was electric
a chemist made us for each other
but i was far from being your only one
my roommate said he'd seen you before...

theres something missing in us
we try to make it whole
though it never feels like it, i know you have it all
theres something missing in us
we long to make it whole
though it never feels like it
i know you have it all
i know you have it all

we went to the social development dance
the whiskey went down easily
you kissed the best you had enormous breasts
and we wandered out really early
we were neighbors for a very short time
it all worked out quite wrong
when your boyfriend called
you pressed against the wall
...:"oh i really gotta go now"....

theres something missing in us
we try to make it whole
though it never feels like it, i know you have it all
theres something missing in us
we long to make it whole
though it never feels like it
i know you have it all
i know you have it all

wed move away when the winters were gone
i think i saw you once in the city
i heard you were staying up North with a friend
and that your hair was falling out
i tried to find out what had happened to you
i Googled you in quotes got no results
i never learned how you had died
but i knew how you had lived

theres something missing in us
we tried to make it whole
though it never felt like it i know you had it all
theres something missing in us
we longed to make it whole
though it never felt like it, i know you had it all
i know you had it all
friend my friend, you left us in the end.
