about

This song was written in December of 2010. It was originally supposed to be about a break up. However, during the writing process, we decided to leave it open-ended because, well...you know...

What happens in Vegas...

lyrics

VERSE 1
I guess I was too late
This empty bench says everything, everything
About what we once had
You've thrown your towel into the ring, the ring, yeah

CHORUS
Now I’m standing in the rain
Regretting things I said today and yesterday
Your bus is on the road
Heading to that distant zip code
Leaving me standing in the rain

VERSE 2
We never figured out
We were constantly on the outs
Living day by day
There’s nothing left to say, no no no…

CHORUS
But now I’m standing in the rain
Regretting things I said today and yesterday
Your bus is on the road
Heading to that distant zip code
Leaving me standing in the…

BRIDGE
Rain, it’s coming down
I’ll wear this frown
I’ll be so sad forever
I go back home
I find that note on the table
Says “See you in Vegas!”

CHORUS
But now I’m standing in the rain
Regretting things I said today and yesterday
Your bus is on the road
Heading to a distant zip code
Leaving me standing in the rain
Standing in the rain
Standing in the rain

…See you in Vegas
