lyrics

It smells like water from a hose; it's specific, yeah I know.
But one year later wax stained brick let me know we couldn't wash you out

Do you know you sold out your funeral? How many times did you sing along?
Would you think of yourself as a success? Or is it loaded asking you now?

It's always point and place.
Lake Ontario quiet for Tommy and me.
For Laura Lee it's a blue-green lake in Knoxville, TN.
Where you found it I'd like to see.

Take a breathe to a fresh start on how to do this without the doubt.
I'm looking for advice in things I don't think you said to me.

Shared experience we all have; it’s a pit in the stomach we all know too well.
What helped on the hard nights? Is it the belly laugh you taught me?

It's always point and place
Lake Ontario quiet for Tommy and me.
For Laura-Lee it's a blue-green lake in Knoxville, TN.
where you found it I'd like to see.

It's the campfire smell of a Michigan May.
It's the time I stained my hands in a mulberry tree.
It's the physical manifestation of a complex feeling;
Point and place to remind me to breathe.

Self imposed pressure to succeed;
Reminded I'm separate in a diner with people I love to see.
But I get so worked up in remembering I measure things differently.
I know that shit is tight, but I can't help thinking there's something I'm missing.

Gone before you're 23, I'm measuring success in our twenties.
Gone before you're 23, more here than was, now fleeting.
How do you measure success? When I compare I lose so much.
How can this be positive when I question all this shit..?
