In Our Prime

Album: Turn Blue (2014)
  • Pour me down the drain, I disappear
    Like every other's thing I used to hear

    Like every lover hovers in my mind
    We made our mark when we were in our prime
    The house it burned, but nothing there was mine
    We had it all when we were in our prime

    Every now and then I see your face from way back when and I explode
    Friends no longer egg me on
    They bullshit serenade me like it's gold how then we're told
    I'm praying for some laughter
    Maybe joy for ever after till I die
    I'm hungry for a change
    I got my fill of other's pain, I realized, opened my eyes

    Like every lover hovers in my mind
    We made our mark when we were in our prime
    The house it burned, but nothing there was mine
    We had it all when we were in our prime Writer/s: Daniel Auerbach, Patrick James Carney, Brian Joseph Burton
