Environment Canada confirmed That a tornado did touch down The hot and the cold air mixed and got confused Like sex and religion making out in the pews But nobody got too concerned And that summer had its own distinct sound Like a warning siren going off in your head Like a lonesome bar and that thing your mom said Let's go once more around the block For all the pies we ate and shots we threw up Playing schoolyard 3-on-3 Let's go to one more show as good as Shotgun Jimmie The university declared That all your studying didn't go to waste Convocation in the dolled-up gym We finally met your dad and said you looked like him No other flavour can compare With the summer serendipitous taste Of deep-fried anything and batter on a stick And the sour seconds of your 4-am sick Let's go once more from the top For all the fun displaced in the name of growing up No weekday revelry Let's go to one more show and watch the crowd all shimmy shimmy
The Prize 03:19
It's a big grin night, a title fight And we go to the show I wanna play a little more We'll take my dad's old car, I hope it starts And we'll go to the show I wanna dance a little more with you Feeling out the prize It's a night in the dawn of our lives It's a cold grey dawn, the magic's gone So hold me close I'm feeling like a ghost It's a tender age, it's centre stage So hold me close I'm feeling mostly whole
I shot out of that summer like a freight train Billowing a new year hope There's a pressure in my lungs when I'm alone You wrapped around my winter like a warm coat Worn in half-lit and recessed halls, but I bet I don't exist when you're alone Cause I want you to want me more, I wanna Hear you call my name and feel the fear in your heart That this could be more than a start And I want you to pin me down, I wanna Feel you shove right back until I'm out of the dark I want you to love me like the bible loves the bullet when it's pushing through I'm reckless driving over and the night sky Is whispering an icy truth: You only sing along when we're alone You measure every word, keep them clean cut And supervised like fragile kites, but There's got to be a weight for me to hold
