o’brien nocturne lyrics – m. ward

well we talked about old times
like a couple of old guys
and took a little walk to the old baseball diamond
and along came o’brien
with a guitar in his hand
met us on the field with impeccable timing

he said i got a new song to show ya
though it probably ain’t gonna blow your mind
and the thing about o’brien was
he could always make a string buzz like it was 1989
and i remember my old car and that old girlfriend of mine

it was a cracked wooden thing
he said wanna talk about old strings
it’s been 10, 12 years since i last changed mine
and it says sears down the neck
had a little blood stain on the second fret
but you know it still keeps impeccable timing

and he said i got a brand new song to show ya
though it probably ain’t gonna blow your mind
and the thing about o’brien was
he could always make a string buzz like it was still 1989
and i remember my first car and that old girlfriend of mine

and that’s the story about o’brien blew my mind
