steadier footing lyrics – death cab for cutie

it’s gotten late and now i want to be alone
all of our friends were here, they all have gone home
and here i sit on the front porch watching the drunks stumble forth into the night
“you gave me a heart attack; i did not see you there. i thought you had disappeared so early away from here.”
and this is the chance i never got to make a move.
but we just talk about the people we’ve met in the last 5 years.
and will remember them in ten more?
i let you b*m a smoke, you quit this winter past.
i’ve tried twice before but like this, it just will not last.
