Lyrics

I hope this isn’t a burden, thanks for having us over / We could sleep on the couch, we could sleep on the floor / We will leave before you even notice we were here or even notice us at all. / Been having problems with our landlord, he said he’s taking us both to court / She got her hours slashed and my unemployments drying up fast / We both got worthless diplomas from worthless universities / Two bachelors in worthless studies but at least it made our parents happy / And cost a whole lot of money. / You said L.A. is only two days if we drive straight, Denver if we get tired / Said you didn’t mind stopping just as long as we got out of the Midwest States. / The Midwestern States. / But I know somewhere in Chicago where we can stay for a little / I hope this isn’t a burden, thanks for having us over. / Most nights we always fall asleep with something dumb on Netflix / Some nights trash reality, kids cartoons, or shitty documentaries / Not perfect but we’re good together, me you and our bad tattoos / All our stick and pokes, all our inside jokes, we’ll regret 'em when we’re dead and sober / But we’re still breathing and the party ain’t over.

Gonna buy a Telecaster and spend the rest of my days drinking Busch Beer and eating fried boloney sandwiches in Nashville.
