I Remember a Rooftop Lyrics - Alkaline Trio

Review The Song (0)



I remember a rooftop making out

Downstairs the carpet screamed so loud

I waited so long for that night

Then I just turned away

And I know every street

I know it’s side

But I was lost, unfound, not right


Maybe there’s something wrong inside

Now I've got nowhere to go

My answer's all that I've got

I'm so sorry for so many things

That I haven't said yet

This is the waiting room I spend my whole life in

They gave me a thousand hands so I could count my sins

If I'm lucky maybe I’ll finish before the roof caves in


I lost my life on the first try

You found it miles down the line

A swallowed face with

3 birds' names


It gets the taste back in my tongue

You sucked the smoke out of my lungs

And then we slept for days and days and days


When we woke up

My heart, I choked up

Had to say "I love you" way too soon

But right there on your couch

You loved me too

Right there on your couch

You loved me too


19 and sober once or twice

I caught some junkie's bad advice

Up to my eyes in others' problems

Couldn’t see I never solve them

My Only skin and bone

And this and pills unknown

I took my lousy shot

At public recognition

Could never pull the trigger

If I wasn't shaking


I lost my life on the first try

You found it miles down the line

A swallowed face with

3 birds' names


It gets the taste back in my tongue

You sucked the smoke out of my lungs

And then we slept for days and days and days


When we woke up

My heart, I choked up

Had to say, "I love you" way too soon

But right there on your couch

You loved me too

Right there on your couch

You loved me too
