Alkaline Trio I Remember a Rooftop Lyrics

I remember a rooftop making out
Downstairs the cupboard screamed so loud
I waited so long for that night
Then I just turned away

And I know every street on the West Side
But I was lost, unfound, not right
Maybe there's something wrong inside

Now I've got nowhere to go, my hands is 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 calm 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 swollen face with three first names
You kiss the taste back in my tongue
You suck the smoke out of my lungs
And then we slept for days and days, and days
When we woke up, my heart had 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

Nineteen and sober once or twice
I caught some junky's bad advice
Up to my eyes in others problems
Couldn't see I'd never solve them

I'm only skin and bone and piss 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 swollen face with three first names

You kiss the taste back in my tongue
You suck the smoke out of my lungs
And then we slept for days and days, and days

When we woke up, my heart had 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
