that year lyrics – brandi carlile

i must have been sleeping
i must have been drinking
i haven’t been dreaming about you for years
there was a sharp turn and a sunburn
i was too cool for high school that year

it must have been new years
no one invited you
you took things too far
but i miss you
and your antics
you were lonesome
and blue eyed
and so special to us

you should have taken a long break
instead of a long drop from a high place
ten years i never spoke your name
now it feels good to say it
you’re my friend again

he said he forgave you
i said i hated you
he was the bigger man
i was sixteen
all the innocence
it took for
you to finally make the year book
that year
that year

you should have taken a long break
instead of a long drop
instead of a leap of faith
ten years i never spoke your name
now it feels good to say that
you’re my friend again
you’re my friend again

i was angry
i was a baptist
i was a daughter
i was wrong
