Hey you, do you remember me?
15, sitting in a graveyard talking about their history
Are you sleeping well at night?
Your eyes are closed and the window's down
But your thoughts are not in flight


Let the girl sleep off her pain
Her thoughts collide like waves
A voice is in her head
This is what is says

Chorus:

I'm your new best friend
Yeah I'm your new haircut
Yeah I'm the alcohol that burns down your neck and into your gut
And I was cold outside
And your screams are loud
And I'm trying to wrap up
I find it hard to stumble to the ground

Verse 2:

Hey you, do you remember me?
17 lying on a bed now we're making history
Did you hear the news today?
I'm leaving home with a letter torn straight from an empty case

Let the families say good bye
Such a withered night
The boy will learn to talk
Excitement won't hide

Chorus:

I'm your new best friend
Yeah I'm your new haircut
Yeah I'm the alcohol that burns down your neck and into your gut
And I was cold outside
and your screams are loud
And I'm trying to wrap up
I find it hard to stumble to the ground



Verse 3:

Hey you, do you still think of me?
19, sitting on a beach clutching a bottle of history
Are you still singing songs at night?
I heard that one that you wrote for me how can false words sound pretty?


Let the boys sing out their pain
Let the dreams just slip away
Let the liars howl at night
Under darkened lamp light

(Sing it with me boys)

Chorus:

I'm your new best friend
Yeah I'm your new haircut
Yeah I'm the alcohol that burns down your neck and into your gut
And I was cold outside
and your screams are loud
And I'm trying to wrap up
I find it hard to stumble to the ground
