Meet Me

Walking through the halls
Backpacks and heavy hearts in tow
Promising plans for today
After school, meet me at the Ridge
And we can let go of everything
Let all these teenage woes plummet over the cliff of oblivion
Sinking deep into this beer as the music blasts
Angry verses from your battered Chevi
Tell me about the way she smiled
And I'll tell you how he held my hand
With the utter brashness of young love
And you and me, you and I
Will drink to the terrible heartbreak
Of those that never mattered and passed us by
Her in her leather sandals
He in his vans
Like a hair in the hands of the fates
Waiting to be snapped or broken
We will turn to the fading sunlight and raise our bottles
You and me, you and I
And tomorrow return to the same grey halls
Carefree as the sun
Until you see her with her friends and he brushes by me
The Ridge again tonight?
