lyrics

I'd like to believe that we're still sinking deep
Into the corners of your couch cushions
You'd like to imagine all your college classes
Made you so grown-up looking
You taught me to move, we tip-toed through the room
You made me feel famous
You will forever be my closest acquaintance

But we were watching all your favorite movies
Sitting there absolutely still
And I don't understand how we can make plans
And only talk about T.V.
But oh, what a wonderful waste of time

I'd like to pretend that I am still your houseguest
Wearing too much perfume
You'd like to believe I'm still sinking deep
Into the corners of your couch cushions
I'm watching you drive, holding the road
Your wrists were hairtied and braceleted
I held them both, not knowing we'd be close acquaintances

But we were watching all your favorite movies
Sitting there absolutely still
And I don't understand how we can make plans
And only talk about T.V.
But oh, what a wonderful waste of time

We hide inside our headphones
And speak when convenient or when we're bored
"Hey", that's all that we say, say, say anymore
But I know we don't know what we want

But we were watching all your favorite movies
Sitting there absolutely still
And I don't understand how we can make plans
And only talk about T.V.
But oh, what a wonderful waste of time
Oh, what a wonderful waste of time
