    Crashed on the floor when I moved in
    This little bunk alone with some strange new friends
    Stay up too late, and I'm too thin
    We promise each other it's til the end
    Now we're spinning empty bottles
    It's the five of us
    With pretty eyed boys girls die to trust
    I can't resist the day
    No, I can't resist the day

    Jenny screams out and it's no pose
    'Cause when she dances she goes and goes
    Beer through the nose on an inside joke
    I'm so excited, I haven't spoken
    And she's so pretty, and she's so sure
    Maybe I'm more clever than a girl like her
    The summer's all in bloom
    The summer is ending soon

    It's alright and it's nice not to be so alone
    But I hold on to your secrets in white houses

    Maybe I'm a little bit over my head
    I come undone at the things he said
    And he's so funny in his bright red shirt
    We were all in love and we all got hurt
    I sneak into his car's black leather seat
    The smell of gasoline in the summer heat
    Boy, we're going way too fast
    It's all too sweet to last

    It's alright
    And I put myself in his hands
    But I hold on to your secrets in white houses
    Love, or something ignites in my veins
    And I pray it never fades in white houses

    My first time, hard to explain
    Rush of blood, oh, and a little bit of pain
    On a cloudy day, it's more common than you think
    He's my first mistake

    Maybe you were all faster than me
    We gave each other up so easily
    These silly little wounds will never mend
    I feel so far from where I've been
    So I go, and I will not be back here again
    I'm gone as the day is fading on white houses
    I lie, put my injuries all in the dust
    In my heart is the five of us
    In white houses

    And you, maybe you'll remember me
    What I gave is yours to keep
    In white houses
    In white houses
    In white houses



    Love that song! :D
