about

When I'm performing, l will often preface this song by saying "This is a song about a girl I met in first-year university. It goes like this:"

lyrics

It was in first-year university,
It was about to see the worst of me,
But for now I floated in a bubble of your bliss. . .

I followed you for weeks,
Just to brush against your cheeks
And take a bite out of the apple of your kiss. . .

It tasted so fine. . .
Tasted so fine. . .
Tasted so fine. . . Like a local Macintosh

I don't think I'll ever forget
That first night we spent together
Glueing stars upon your dorm room ceiling . . .

You made me feel so nice, you made me
Feel like I was priceless,
You made me feel like I didn't care what I was feeling . . .

It was it was so fine. . .
Oh what a time. . .
It was so fine. . . To this day I can't believe I lived it

(You were a beautiful girl, who was great at math and an artist!?)

But I guess I should have noticed maybe
When I kept trying to call you "Baby"
That was not a nickname you took to very well
And I couldn't give you what you need,
I just wanted to keep on smoking weed,
And before I knew it, you and I were through, oh hell!

You drew the line, and now you're with him, and that's alright
You drew the line, and now you're with him, and that's alright
You drew the line. . .
Maybe you even tried to draw it sooner?

(I mean we were on life-support by the end, I dunno why I didn't notice)

But it was in first year university,
It was about to see the worst of me,
And I decided I needed more than a friend. . .
I hope you're seeing better days and I hope he treats you the way you know you deserve
And I really hope I see you again. . .

Karen. . .
Karen. . .
I hope I see you again
Karen. . .
Karen. . .
I hope I see you again
Can't run, can't run,
We should just have been friends,
Karen. . .
Karen. . .
