Losing A Whole YEar

I remember you and me used to spend the whole goddamn day in bed. Hiding in your room we'd lay like dogs, The phone would ring like a joke that's left unsaid. Rich daddy left you with a parachute. Your voice sounds like money and your face is cute, But your daddy left you with no love, You touch everything with a velvet glove and Now you wanna try your life of sin, You wanna be down with the down and in. Always copping my truths, I kinda get the feeling like I'm being used, And now I realize that you never heard, one goddamn word I ever said. I took your stuff and put it in the basement, when I found out what the smile on your face meant. I seen you pop that check craning your neck at the car wreck. And it always seems that the juice used to flow, In the car, in the kitchen you were good to go. Now we're stuck with the tube, A sink full of dishes and some aqua lube. And I remember you and me used to spend the whole goddamn day in bed. Hey, bye. If it's not the defense then you're on the attack, When you start talking I hear the Prozac, Convinced you found your place with the pierced queer teens in cyberspace. When you were yourself it tasted sweet, But it Sours into a routine deceit, Well this drama is a bore And I don't wanna play no more. Whoa why, Whoa, why. I remember you and me used to spend, The whole goddamn day in bed. Hey, bye. Hey, bye.

this song is about a rich girl from bernal heights
(bernal heights is a sf neighborhood.)
The story is just lamenting the end of a relationship and all of its wasted time.”
