Watermelon Milkshakes

Well, you said it didn’t mean anything
Anything much
A few little kisses and a couple little touches in the bed of your truck
In the parking lot of the Cook Out
Watermelon milkshakes spilling down our fronts
Sandy from the river in the afternoon sun
And you said, “This is so good, this is what I want”

So I thought that kind of meant something
I kind of thought the summer just beginning and you were leaning in
But you said we were just friends, and that was just lunch

There are pictures from that summer of you and me together
Swimming in the river, sunburn on our shoulders
You said that it was just whatever
But I was in love

So now we don’t do anything
Anything much
A few little kisses and a couple little touches after a couple shots
In the bar across from that Cook Out
Watermelon lemon drops spilling down our fronts
Sandy shuffleboard in our favorite haunt
Just as friends, just a crush

But we’re too drunk to drive home
We’re gonna have to walk
The summer almost over and you leaning in closer
Saying, “Let’s not stop, wanna come up?”

There are pictures from that summer of you and me together
From the morning after when I should have known better
You said that it was just whatever
But I was in love

I think we’re gonna have to quit it
We’re gonna have to stop
These few little kisses and couple little touches are fucking me up
But our tank tops from the Cook Out
Watermelon polka dots all over the front
Were memories of a summer of you and me together
Fucking it up

There are pictures from that summer of you and me together
Sunburn on our shoulders, kissing in the river
You said it was just whatever
But I was in love
