It's autumn in Amherst and I'm wondering why There's no leaves on the ground and not dark by five It's dull on the East coast and that's why we choose rock and Time sure flies when you're tossing clocks In our town, we sit around Watching movies and hanging out In our town, we've imprinted our bodies into leather couches It's autumn in Amherst and I'm wondering why There's no leaves on the ground and not dark by five It's dull on the East coast and that's why we choose rock and Time sure flies when you're tossing clocks Don't get me wrong In our town, we watch the rain turn to leaves turning to snow In our town, we choose strings and keys over desks and essays Autumn will never change The suburbs inside us will never go away They won't go away It's autumn in Amherst and I'm wondering why There's no leaves on the ground and not dark by five It's dull on the East coast and that's why we choose rock and Time sure flies when you're tossing clocks Don't get me wrong We have our fun Don't get me wrong We have our fun.
