Always with your orange purse
Looking back at Berlin
Books and clothes up on your bed and
Counting all your new friends

You're an astronaut
Got a degree in engineering
Mine don't mean much
It's true
But NASA's really proud of you

Not too young
Spent your twenties on campus housing
No you didn't make the Ivy League
But your parents are still proud of you

Into fashion
Throw that parka on
It's raining over snow in October

Boston street lights pull you away tonight
And carry you where you need be
Not on my side you're set free

Boston street lights pull away tonight
You're grains of sand in my hand
The tides they pull a hard bend
From me

We are ‘The Colonnade’; four relatively sad boys making jangly, indie-rock out of Boston, MA since the summer of 2014.
