It’s the movie we made
Without filming it to be shown
It was just for ourselves
It was for us alone

It’s the movie we made
It oftentimes in my mind
It’s a past I can’t shake
Or even get behind

It’s the people I left
It’s the ones who left me
It’s the regrets I have
It’s why I’m not free
Of the battles we fought
They almost took me down
But here I am still
Kickin’ ‘round this town

Out on Vega Road
Stands a house on the hill
It’s where my friends lived
Where I took a red pill

I bought their kindness
I bought their upset
It was a few short years
That I’d never forget

It’s the people I left
It’s the ones who left me
It’s the regrets I have
It’s why I’m not free
Of the battles we fought
That almost took me down
But here I am still
Kickin’ ‘round this town

The Palm Avenue house
Still looks the same
As it did when the mailbox
Had their last name

And I think about them
Those days we spent
But I cannot believe
Where all the time went

It’s the people who died
It’s the places I cried
It’s why I was right
To take off that night
To go find my old friends
To make my amends
It wasn’t for show
But they’ll never know

When on Virginia Street
I see the house is still green
It’s the place I’d practice
A new song or scene
And the Doblers still live
In 815, the house across
Last I heard of Craig,
He’ll soon be the farm’s boss

It’s the people still here
Those who won’t return
It’s all those promises made
It’s the hours I burn
Creating the new things
And setting fire to the past
The movie we made,
It’s one that won’t last

The movie we made
It’s one that won’t last
