about

Written by Owen Ashworth

lyrics

Most of the snow’s melted it’s just lumps of ice
& plastic bags strewn in the yard

I’d go & get us a bottle of wine

but I’m pretty sure that they card
Lansing is ugly it smells like a bus

but it’s better than where we came from
& you’re the only girl I can talk to
You’re the only other girl from back home

You got a job & you got me one too

& we hated our jobs pretty bad

but there was this one boy we both thought was cute
This Hessian dishwasher named Chad

& I took him home knowing you liked him first
& you cussed me out on the phone

Now you won’t even talk to me

& you’re the only other girl from back home

I ran into Case-Man an hour ago

He was just passing through town

He said this junior took gasoline cans

& she burned our old high school down

& I ran out to find you I looked everywhere
though you said to leave you alone

But you’re the only person that I thought should know

You’re the only other girl from back home

You’re the one single person I wanted to tell
We’re the only two girls from back home
