Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness - Art School Girlfriend Lyrics




I woke up on the ground, again
Left the tv on, the government is shutting down
My day's wide open.

I woke up on the ground, and you were in a cardigan sweater with your horn rimmed glasses on.
Can't see the world without them.

Living in the pages of a book she read,
I sewed a farewell letter with a needle and thread
and called in sick for good.
Sitting on an island with the girl I need,
I made a fat withdrawal from a cash machine
and I found a place to start again
with my art school girlfriend.
Art school girlfriend.

"I don't know where it is"

So I climb into bed awake
You got your camera out to take pictures of the mess we made
to save for later.
I'm happy wasting away, it's cool,
You're in a portable dark room and I'm dreaming of the swimming pool
while I read your latest papers

Living in the pages of a book she read,
I sewed a farewell letter with a needle and thread
and called in sick for good.
Sitting on an island with the girl I need,
I made a fat withdrawal from a cash machine
and I found a place to start again
with my art school girlfriend.
Art school girlfriend.

She's all I need,
she's all I need.
And so I'm living in the pages of the books she read,
I sewed a farewell letter with a needle and thread
and called in sick for good.
Sitting on an island with the girl I need,
I made a fat withdrawal from the cash machine
and I found a place to start again
with my art school girlfriend.
Art school girlfriend.

She's all I need.
She's all I need.
