Just talked to this girl
who used to live on my street
after all these years you're here
and you remember me
she said her old boyfriend packed up and headed back east
but she always knew someday he would go
she just got a new job but she doubts it will last
so let's take a drink and never think
and here's to the past
and she says it's so funny
how life burns our so fast
it's just another wasted day
a boring life in a boring town with the same old crowd
and I used to say that I'd never stay
but I'm rotting here today
with that same old crowd
that's always been around
and I always thought I'd be the first to go
that same old crowd that brings me down
a boring life in a boring town
and remember when they'd look through you
and then look past me
we were the ones they said would always leave
when you go think of me --- less than jake: history of a boring town

i used to always be so scared that would be me. that song stirs some strong and visceral in me. just like the girl next door.
