When We Were Kids

from Our Undivided Attention by Benchmarks

lyrics

someone open a window, it's ninety-nine degrees
and we can't afford to keep the AC on
another sixteen hour day, another past due bill to pay
and soon as it comes in the money's gone

but when we were kids we spent our whole lives waiting for summer
take me out tonight and pick up the heat

I can't take these days for granted
I won't make these wasted days
I can't take these days for granted
I won't make these wasted days

am I going through the motions, just trying to catch my breath?
praying that I make it out alive
fighting the urge to just give up, to get out of town, to get grown up
and move out to the suburbs and wait to die

but when we were kids we'd stay out all night holding off the morning
but the daylight still broke through
