Virginia - David Bazan

virginia i had a dream that you invited us over
you still lived on the street where you laid down for good
we all sat on the floor as my kids swam around us
you smoked cigarettes like i knew you would
we were worried about your personal salvation
was it heaven or hell that you saw when your eyes closed
you smiled at us floating high above the question
like you knew something we didn't know
virginia i had a dream we were closer than brothers
singing pictures of you crashing cars skipping school
we drove all over town as the days blurred around us
we wore out your cassettes we were nobody's fool
they were worried about our high school graduation
they read us a poem oh the places you'll go
you smiled it off floating high above the question
like you knew something they didn't know
