lyrics

How I love this country's midwest mountain* air,
Cause we didn't have to drag the keg downstairs.
But I couldn't focus on my friends who sang along,
I'm too aware of the one who looked like she'd rather not be there.

Hope you didn't hear what i just shared.

Cause it's people like you,
that remind people like me.
Why couches are the only places
where I should bother sleeping.
A homesick vagrant and wandering vagabond.
Put my guitar down so that she
has some place to rest her head upon.

When the basement finally cleared out,
and the people finally left,
I got the sense that she didn't like my set.
But when we're alone I quickly learned all the songs that she'd request,
until she finally seemed impressed.

Didn't notice that the sun had risen.
But to our liver's we both owe a debt.

Cause it's people like you,
that remind people like me.
Why couches are the only places
where I should bother sleeping.
A homesick vagrant and wandering vagabond.
Put my guitar down so that she
has some place to rest her head upon.

It's been nice having you round here,
but I should've made that class.
That bottle was my father's,
gotta hide it cause he'll ask.
I'm in desperate need of sleep now,
seeking refuge in my bed.
You're here another week now,
so i'll take the couch instead.

Cause it's people like you,
that remind people like me.
Why couches are the only places
where I should bother sleeping.
A homesick vagrant and wandering vagabond.
Put my guitar down so that she
has some place to rest her head upon.


* I meant "autumn" but I sang "mountain" on the recording. I didn't notice until it was too late to fix.
