you made me want to be a saint lyrics – the wonder years

“you made me want to be a saint”

it was how dave said “us”
like the last three years had never happened
it was how george walked down and threw dirt onto the casket
it was how i know you would want this to be a fast one
and not some clichã© ballad

i’m slowing down in the august air
a heavy heart and shaking hands carried you up here
i buried half of a decade there
it was the better part
you’d catch the reference if only you could hear
because i can still hear you in the b*ss drum beat after “i’ll catch you”
i’m left wondering if you meant anything when you typed out
“you never got me down, ray. i never went down”

you know the f*cked up part is
i kind of always knew we’d have to write a song about this
you know the f*cked up part is
i had my fingers crossed that it wouldn’t be for you, kid
you know the f*cked up part is
it’s been months, and i still have nightmares
you know the f*cked up part is
i’m never going back there
you know the f*cked up part is
the f*ckedup part isthef*ck edup partisth ef*ckedu ppartisf*ckf*ckf*ck.
