Buffalo Buffalo Lyrics

Spanish Love Songs
[Verse 1]
Lost in the South, my thermostat don't work
I'm sweating naked on my bed
It's gonna fade to nasty yellow in the morning
Another blank face staring through me
Like a chalk outline of dreams that bled out in the night
A post-mortem portrait of loneliness
Some heavy-handed statement
Like "I've never felt at home"

[Verse 2]
And some a****** shot up some kids
A week before you left for Portland
I'm thinking about dying again
From the worst outcomes of a world
That I can't slow down
No matter how many times
I throw my hands into the air
And plead with everyone
I know it's wrong
But I'm thinking about buying a gun

[Chorus]
Would you meet me in the middle?
Would you meet me north of Buffalo?
We'll escape into the winter
Build a house where no one wants to go
Meet me in the middle
Would you meet me north of Buffalo?
We'll escape into the winter
Build a house where no one wants to go

[Verse 3]
'Cause that's not an option
When everything looks like an epitaph
Staring back at me
I'll pace this parking lot trying
To squeeze out from this misery
How do I find you
When you're lost out in the sea of green
If the sun won't come back?

[Pre-Chorus]
Rather be sheep in a snowstorm
Than a lion in the brush
Rather be sheep in a snowstorm
Than a lion in the brush
In the sights of a b****** who can't get it up

[Chorus]
Would you meet me in the middle?
Would you meet me north of Buffalo?
We'll escape into the winter
Build a house where no one wants to go
Meet me in the middle
Would you meet me north of Buffalo?
We'll escape into the winter
Build a house where no one
No one wants to ever go
