Hop Along – Prior Things (Music Audio)

Lyrics to “Prior Thing” performed by Hop Along

Just a few minutes after taking them I realized
Hundreds of buzzing flies were all over me
I looked up and there you were, reading
You were on vacation
You were on vacation
Vacation means, leave
Means, obliterate all prior things

Here, why don’t I try
Why don’t I try to make you mine
Why is a lack of imagination the crime
Why don’t I try
Why don’t I try to make you mine
Why don’t I back you up against this moment

So when you finally go
You go, you go, you go..
And when you choose to go
I resume my little road
And nobody needs to know
Will know, will know, will know
Will know that I ever meant to leave
My little lower road, road, road..

I watch the bird feeder out back in my parents’ yard
The weight of that bluejay
The bully steals it all

And what must happen in your mind
When you create those silences
Well never mind
Never mind, I don’t want to see
I know it’s got nothing to do with me

Here, why don’t I try
Why don’t I try to move aside
I’m still soft, I’m still in my prime
Why don’t I try
Why don’t I try to move aside
I’m still soft, it’s still my time

And when you finally go
You go, you go, you go..
When you choose to go
I resume my little road
And nobody needs to know
Will know, will know, will know
Will know that I ever meant to meant to leave
My little lower road

And when you finally go
You go, you go, you go..
When you choose to go
I resume my little road
And nobody needs to know
Will know, will know, will know
Will know that I was only holding your place on this
Your little lower road
Your little lower road..
Your little lower road…
