This is the only love song on the record and a bitter sweet pill for me swallow. I still almost tear up sometimes when I hear it. Tessa's appendix bursting (and subsequent complications) put a lot of things in perspective. It was a surreal 12 days sleeping on a foldout cot in her hospital room and putting the pieces back together of how sick she really had been. I saw Tessa for the first time at a Half-Handed Cloud show. We have a Kepi Ghouli button with the word “HEY” on it! It hold up one side of a curtain. Tessa's favorite place to be is laying her head on my shoulder, and when my shoulder's not cramping, it's amazing!


Chorus: So put your head on my shoulder and we'll both wake up one day older just you and I, just you and I

Hey kid what do you know you went to a rock n' roll show and you met a guy, now it's you and I

Many years have passed since then you went to a lover from my best friend and I cried, when you almost died
