Tire Swing - Kimya Dawson 

I took the Polaroid down in my room 
I’m pretty sure you have a new girlfriend 
It’s not as if I don’t like you 

It just makes me sad whenever I see it 
‘cause I like to be gone most of the time 
And you like to be home most of the time 
If I stay in one place I lose my mind 
I’m a pretty impossible lady to be with

“Tire Swing” by Kimya Dawson

I took the Polaroid down in my room.
I’m pretty sure you have a new girlfriend.
It’s not as if I don’t like you,
It just makes me sad whenever I see it.

‘Cause I like to be gone most of the time,
And you like to be home most of the time.
If I stay in one place, I lose my mind.
I’m a pretty impossible lady to be with.

Joey never met a bike that he didn’t want to ride,
And I never met a Toby that I didn’t like.
Scottie liked all of the books that I recommended.
Even if he didn’t, I wouldn’t be offended. 

I had a dream that I had to drive to Madison
To deliver a painting, for some silly reason.
I took a wrong turn and ended up in Michigan.
Paul Baribeau took me to a giant tire swing.

He gave me a push and he started singing.
I sang along while I was swinging.
The sound of our voices made us forget everything
That had ever hurt our feelings.

Joey never met a bike that he didn’t want to ride,
And I never met a Toby that I didn’t like.
Scottie liked all of the books that I recommended.
Even if he didn’t, I wouldn’t be offended.

Now I’m home for less than 24 hours.
That’s hardly time to take a shower,
Hug my family, and take your picture off the wall,
Check my email, write a song, and make a few phone calls

Before it’s time to leave again.
I’ve got one hand on the steering wheel,
One waving out the window.
If I’m a spinster for the rest of my life,
My arms will keep me warm on cold and lonely nights. 

Joey never met a bike that he didn’t want to ride,
And I never met a Toby that I didn’t like.
Scottie liked all of the books that I recommended.
Even if he didn’t, I wouldn’t be offended.
