We debuted this new song at Rockwood Music Hall in New York, NY. Recorded by our dear friend Grace Goodrich.


It was late on the west side
the strangers in the train yard saying “my, oh my”
I was lonely, feeling small for never knowing
how to hurt without it showing to the wolves outside

Can we go out?
I promise not to talk about the money always running out
and where the summer’s gone
It's getting late so tell me what you did today
I'll think of something sweet to say before we get back home

I think of you each time
the barkeep sweeps the lonely people out at night
The ghosts of you and I still go and have a smoke outside
I wonder if they heard we're doing fine

I tell you what, there's not a single one of us
who's glad for what we've given up but so the story goes
With any luck we'll make it out of Mattituck
before the thunder catches up
Oh, how were we to know?

That storm probably saved us
sleeping on a Sunday in the room those people gave us
Back to boston, you're the best I've come across
and when you kiss me in the morning I know why

Our brothers grew like summers do
Autumn came and we left too
Our parents stay and pace the rooms
they painted when the house was new
All our friends have gone away
and not a single bill's been paid
but we still have good things to say

It was late on the west side
the strangers in the train yard showed up right on time
I was lonely, now it’s better ‘cause you hold me
I wonder if they heard we’re doing fine
