We Both Knew

Written in May of 2000 in Woodstock New York

I could tell right away
I could tell by the way that you walk where you’re from

Where you’re from

I could tell right away
I could tell by the way you lit your cigarette too

Your cigarette too

That we both knew
That we both could stay here too long
And wait for something to go wrong
So why wait ’til the feeling has gone
Because we could stay too long

I could tell right away
I could tell, if you did, where you’d have your tattoo

I wonder if you do

When the night turns to day
When the night turns to day we’ll then decide what to do
What to do

Because from the start, girl, we both knew
That we both could stay here too long
And wait for something to go wrong
So why wait ’til the feeling has gone
Because we could stay too long

We could long for the reasons we should care
Longing for the seasons that we could share
Come to find there’s nothing there
There’s nothing there

Oh well

But we both knew
That we both could stay here too long
And wait for something to go wrong
So why wait ’til the feeling has gone
Because we could stay too long
