Weekend away--
way away,

Miles away
from what I know
in Ohio.

As we drink their alcohol
we'll kiss, pretending
like your parents,
watching horrified as we fall
deep into domestic bliss.

Rustic today,
plain today,

Oh what a day
for being alone
in your parents' home.

I'm from Cincinnati,
a big, old small town,
and, as such, Indiana don't seem much
different from where I used to be--

Malory, you really mean so much to me.
All this periphery just gets in the way of what I really mean.

Dirt-tracked, rain-soaked floor.
Shut the windows tight.
Lock the door.
Shielded from the storm,
from our families, our friends, and more.

Breaking away,
way away,

Miles away
from what we know
in our other home.

As we make our way back
to that other home (Ohio),
we'll kiss, pretending like two college kids,
in other words, like ourselves.
