Back to That Year lyrics

That Year

I must have been sleeping, I must have been drinking
I haven't been dreaming about you for years
There was a sharp turn and a sunburn
I was to cool for high school that year, that year

It must have been new years, no one invited you
You took things too far but I missed you
And your antics, you were lonesome
And blue eyed and so special to us

You should have taken a long break
Instead of a long drop from a high place
Ten years I never spoke your name
Now it feels good to say that you're my friend again

Said he forgave you, I said I hated you
He was the bigger man, I was sixteen
All the innocence it took for
You to finally make your year book that year, that year

You could have taken some time away
Instead of a long drop, instead of a leap of faith
Ten years I never spoke your name
Now it feels good to say that you're my friend again
You're my friend again

I was angry, I was a Baptist
I was a daughter, I was wrong
