Modern Baseball – Tears Over Beers


When I was just a boy, we’ll call it 15 or
so, I found myself annoyed by a syndrome of sorts
in my bones That girl who’s next to me, “Wait, next to me? Like, right next to me? Oh god.” she found herself
bored to tears She realized if she wanted conversation,
she’s out of luck for three more years When I moved away from home, 100 miles or
so, I knew a change had grown inside my awkwardly
long limbs and bones That girl who’s next to me, she’s friendly
and thoughtful and quite awfully pretty, But all she has to say is a meat head-themed
monologue on why Brad ran away She said, “All I can hope for is for me to
get better, ’cause all I can take is no more. I’ll win him back again, we’ll be lovers,
best friends. He won’t need no other woman like he did way
back when he was with me. He needed more than me I’m friendly and thoughtful and quite awfully pretty,
But he needed more than me.” When I felt that I should leave, we’ll call
it midnight or so, I found myself annoyed by a syndrome of sorts
in her bones That girl who’s next to me, she don’t know
her worth in this town, ’cause her face starts to shine when that
meat head behind me Is grinning as he’s checking her out “Oh come on!” I said, “All I can hope for is for you to
get better, ’cause all I can take is no more. So I’ll hide where I can, away from you and your
friends, leaking tears over beers once again. Leaking tears over beers once again. You’re leaking tears over beers once again.”

  1. This made me appreciate this song a thousand percent more. Never really paid attention to the story he was telling.

  2. Glad i got the chance to watch them live at vlhs in Pomona California. I felt at home back in those days going to shows having a good time with good friends.
