03. Just Kids

Just Kids
by Mat Kearney



 

ĎCause it was Bel Biv Devoe playing on the radio
And I had Wu Tang Clan living in my stereo
Mama said weíre sixth generation Oregonians
I was rocking them Jordans, with reflector tongues
Two kids with wet cement
Living down in their souls
They say what gets caught when youíre young
Stays there when youíre old
So misunderstood they say
Youíre up to no good
And now weíre trying our best
To start it over again
If Iíd of met you at the playground
Before a hand could tear your world down
Before I slammed down the door and
You said Iím just like my old man
Before I put you in those boxes
And we learned how to disagree
And how your family is a rocket
That blows up in infidelity

For crying out loud I wanna know
How the waves keep on crashing down the doors
Feel the weight of the world and they keep on bringing more
If itís just you and me on the floor
Go grab your coat and Iíll drive us home
Like we were just kids
Like we were just kids

Bob Marley was painted on
My high school walls
But Iíd just disappeared
Into the darkroom halls
Never thought Iíd ever
Make it quite this far
Teacher put up my photographs
Say soon youíll be a star
There was smoke and mirrors
Running down through my veins
I kept on running downtown
Running from Godís grace
Every morning I climbed back through
Those windowpanes
And try my best to ride it out
Over instrumental tapes
If I had met you at the playground
Before a hand could tear your world down
Before I slammed down the door and
You said Iím just like my old man
Before I put you in those boxes
And we learned how to disagree
And how your family is a rocket
That blows up in infidelity

For crying out loud I wanna know
How the waves keep on crashing down the doors
Feel the weight of the world and they keep on bringing more
If itís just you and me on the floor
Go grab your coat and Iíll drive us home
Like we were just kids
Like we were just kids

I can feel it in the way we try
I can feel it in the way we fight
Weíre standing side by side
Like we were just kids
I can feel it in the way we try
I can feel it in the way we fight
Weíre standing side by side
Like we were just kids
I can feel it in the way we try
I can feel it in the way we fight
Weíre standing side by side
Like we were just kids
