lyrics

you painted pictures of my x-rays off the acetates

instead of canvas you were using photographic plates

as a kid you thought that drugs were scary

now you get high in the cemetery

your parents came and got you when you joined the cult

but if we can't make bad decisions, how'll we learn to be adults

that was the worst mother's day ever

teenage widow, we can hang out whenever


you're a five-time champion at letting people go

already halfway through the winter, you're still starving for snow

you could make me millions of mixtapes

but don't do it just to make up for mistakes

got picked up smoking on the corner spent the night in jail

we all used to call you abby, now you're abigail

spent seven nights on seven couches

with backpacks like kangaroo pouches

you went to the optometrist he fixed your sight

and once again you swear that next month you'll start eating right
i know it's hard in your mid-twenties

teenage widow, sometimes you act so ugly

now it feels like there's an asteroid approaching the sun

something so crazy had to happen, you were still so young

you could make me millions of mixtapes

but don't do it just to make up for mistakes

now you're terrorizing motorists from coast to coast

you said you used to do but now you don't believe in ghosts

you stand there with your skirt and tights on

do you still sleep with the lights on

when we go back to long island nothing's there anymore

not the photo place, the slot car track, the video store

but it doesn't really matter

teenage widow, you could be so much sadder
