lyrics

You said you hate cutting your nails,
But can't stand the feeling of them when they're long.
I said I thought you were my Pam,
But so did both of your last two boyfriends.
And my car radio is still set to eastern time and
I've got the "Hallelujah" chorus stuck in the back of my mind
You told me you didn't mean it when you said
That I can't be happy and I'd be better off... alone

I got asked to talk about my worst New Year's Eve,
But I've gotta be honest, I've never had a good one.
Yeah, it's still fucked up about how your dad's dying
And I'm sorry that I snuck out of your bed room in the morning.
I guess that I'm not used to talking to God.
I'm not one to ask for handouts and I keep my fingers crossed when you pray
'Cause to me it's all the same thing

'Cause I thought we were all your family
And I've been screaming at God, 'cause hey Man, you kinda owe me
And I'm not gonna beg to You, for me to be happy
Are You even here, 'cause at least the Devil's shown himself to me

Me and all my friends have been hanging out in Kroger parking lots
'Cause we've been feeling reckless and nothing here is open past dark
And I almost got caught carving curse words into your neighbor's car
I've just be trying to find my Jesus or something that doesn't hurt so bad

'Cause I thought we were all your family
And I've been screaming at God, 'cause hey Man, you kinda owe me
And I'm not gonna beg to You, for me to be happy
Are You even here, 'cause at least the Devil's shown himself to me

I wrote a song once about a car crash and having too many teeth and I guess it just stuck.
