lyrics

It’s a three day drive from here
if I drove through the night
Marked states off my checklist
of places I haven't been yet
I’ll pass over the mountains
in a country sided by oceans
My eyes will droop when I get there
Fall asleep in our apartment

There’s a Northwest smell I remember
of medicine and warm weather
We’d sit by the water
Make plans for the summer
We went to an island
Stayed in a rented cabin
We sat on the dock in the dark when
no other lights were on yet

When I knew, I knew it
Up on that counter
I told her I loved her
but she said it better
And everyone knew it
while they were out smoking
The beer ran down our chins
And I felt it more than ever
I felt it more than ever
I felt it more than ever

Left my key at a friends house
but another friend found it
The downstairs was smoked out
We were worried the cats were dead
Twelve egg omelets at 2 a.m.
I even knew it then
Threw the eggs into Green Lake
I felt it more than ever
I felt it more than ever
I felt it more than ever
I loved you more than ever
I love you more than ever
I love you more than ever
I love you more than ever
