Jennifer O Connor - Valley Road '86 lyrics

From behind the sliding glass door
We were constructing a cure
For what you'd lost today
And would soon have to give away

The backyard had a curse
We stole cigarettes from Mari's purse
And smoked them all
By the big rock down the street

Your jean jacket had a frayed collar
On that midnight shopping trip that Christmas Eve
We'd lie on your bed and talk for hours
I never thought you'd have to leave me

There's diamonds in the eyes
Of little girls that learn to justify
Tremendous loss
Tremendous lives

In the morning after nights when I'd sleep over
We'd walk down the hill and take the bus to school
Valley Road 1986 December
I never will forget you
I never will forget you both
I never will forget
