The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

"Jeremy"

[Verse 1]
We were young, like the future
We were young, and always wrong
We were young, like our country
Learning old ways to be young

[Verse 2]
Random driving around with you
In my dilapidated car
Like Isadora Duncan II
In impossibly long white scarves

[Chorus]
Autumn leaves, diaries
Tennessee and Jeremy
Suddenly, willow trees
Memories of Jeremy

[Verse 3]
Like a Galapagos turtle
We grow old and stay that way
Build a nest in the sand dunes
Lay our eggs and walk away

[Verse 4]
I was writing our dreams down
Making maps of an unseen plane
And I noticed anomalies
That you'd rather not see explained

[Chorus]
Autumn leaves, diaries
Tennessee and Jeremy
Suddenly, willow trees
Memories of Jeremy

[Bridge]
We drove, canopy down
In the scalding rain
On the one day we we young
The house we bought was really a lake
Otters scampered down the halls
There were whirlpools in the floor
And sails

[Verse 5]
You're alone and it's over
You're alone with your gun
You're alone from now on
You're all alone and you're not young

[Chorus]
Autumn leaves, diaries
Tennessee and Jeremy
Suddenly, willow trees
Memories of Jeremy
