Cowboy Boots

[Intro]
And we drink and get older
And some of us even try to get sober
Now here's to the assholes and the last calls
Well, city kids, you get what you ask for

[Bridge]
And acquaintances turn to friends, I hope those frien
ds they remember me
Hold the night for ransom as we kidnap the memories
Not sure there is a way to express what you meant to
me
Sit around a table and use those years as the centerp
iece

[Hook 2x:]
Sounds of the city on Capitol Hill
Where I question if what I'm seeing here is real
Cowboy boots doing lines at the bar
Where the time goes slow when you're drinking PBR


Hold on to what you were, forget what you're not
The streets were ours that summer, at least those two
blocks
Reminisce on those days, I guess that's OK, you wonde
r why
Some grow up, move on, close the chapter, live separa
te lives
The twenty-something confusion before the suit and ti
e
Strangers become mistakes but those mistakes made you
feel alive
Hindsight is vibrant, reality: rarely lit
Memory's a collage pasted to the glue that barely sti
cks
Good Lord, they broke all my shields
Locked bathroom doors, graffiti, and high heels
Until you felt that altitude you don't know how high
feels
Party mountain, some don't ever come down from around
here
To be young again, I guess it's relative
The camel lights, the whiskey rye, sink into the skin
I fantasize about a second win
Grow a moustache, pick up another bad habit and let t
he games begin

[Hook 2x]


So here's to the nights, dancing with the band
Strangers into girlfriends from a one night stand
Brought a little liquor and turn up the Johnny Cash
You could bring a receipt to Heaven but you cannot ta
ke it back
And this is life, this is real, even when it feels li
ke it isn't
I'd be a goddamn liar to say at times I didn't miss i
t
So deuces, I turn my back as I walk into the distance
Dip my feet in every once in a while, just to say I v
isit
Come and hold onto these nights
Trying to find our way home by the street light
Over time you figure out this is me, right
Learn a lot about your friends right around two A.M

[Bridge]
