Acoustic version of Red Bank, a song on our upcoming record.

lyrics

I chose to walk through the park on my way home tonight,
had to clear my head so I thought I wouldn't drive.
Through this battlefield, I see city lights
that seem to light up the whole night sky.
And from this cliche mess, I’m sure you know the next few lines.

I know you said this probably wouldn't last,
it makes me think of the past, which surely has passed.
It reminds me of a year ago, my friend's advice which I now know
said everybody wants what they can't have.

If we can’t get through the summer,
without one of us feeling torn.
Then we can’t get through the winter,
cause we'll need some one to keep us warm.
The spring and the fall are my favorite of all,
yet I know that I don't need you.
I’ll always seem to want to,
guess I gotta move on.

I decided to drive by your old house today,
the connections are gone but the same old feelings stay.
They say time only flies when you're having fun,
if this is true my time has barely begun,
but sometimes it only feels like yesterday.

When we walked through the crowded house together,
so many people were there yet I still felt so alone.
The closest thing to love that night,
was when I gave you my coat just to do some right.
Did you take it out of love or were you just that cold?
Were you just cold?

If we can’t get through the summer,
without one of us feeling torn.
Then we can’t get through the winter,
cause we'll need someone to keep us warm.
The spring and the fall are my favorite of all,
yet I know that I don't need you.
I’ll always seem to want to,
guess I gotta move on.

It’s hard for you to hear, as it’s hard for me to write.
Part of me will always love you,
all of me will care whats right for you.
With this never-ending chase,
with the words I cant erase.
But you know what I have to do
and it might kill me to say.
Its hard for you to hear,
as it’s hard for me to write,
but you know that it’s not worth it,
it’s not worth the fight,
I guess I gotta move on.

If we can't get through the summer.

Just so you know, I don't regret our past year,
still it's safe to say that I've learned a lot.
