Matilda & me (lyrics)

Matilda & me
(words&music: Peter Slager)

We didn’t have any money left
The car ran out of gas
And I ran out of patience
I knew we would get nowhere fast
Matilda said that she could wait a little longer
That’s how we differed most

Matilda & me
I guess we both knew how to look
For things that were free
Matilda & me
Matilda & me
We couldn’t spend a lonely dollar on the world
Matilda & me
Just a boy and a girl

We didn’t know about the harsh end of summer
We soon fell out of love
When the leaves began to fall
And then times were getting rough
Matilda promised me that dreams are for the taking
Again
I promised her to call

Matilda & me
I guess we both knew how to look
For things that were free
Matilda & me
Mathilde & me
We wouldn’t spend a lonely dollar on the world
Matilda & me
Just a boy and a girl

Who said that they would leave one day
the leaves began to fall
tumbling further on down the line
untill there was nothing left at all
for…

Matilda & me
We kinda had it coming
Matilda & me
We kinda had it coming
Matilda & me
We kinda had it coming

And so it came our way
