Crashed on the floor when I moved in
This little bungalow alone with some strange new friends Stay up too late, and I'm too thin
We promise each other it's til the end
Now we're spinning empty bottles It's the five of us
With pretty eyed boys girls die to trust I can't resist the day
No, I can't resist the day
 Jenny screams out and it's no pose Cause when she dances she goes and goes
And beer through the nose on an inside joke
And I'm so excited, I haven't spoken And she's so pretty, and she's so sure Maybe I'm more clever than a girl like her
The summer's all in bloom The summer is ending soon

It's alright and it's nice not to be so alone But I hold on to your secrets in white houses
 Maybe I'm a little bit over my head
I come undone at the things he said
And he's so funny in his bright red shirt We were all in love and we all got hurt
I sneak into his car's cracked leather seat
The smell of gasoline in the summer heat
Boy, we're going way too fast
It's all too sweet to last

It's alright And I put myself in his hands But I hold on to your secrets in white houses
Love, or something ignites in my veins And I pray it never fades in white houses

My first time, hard to explain Rush of blood, oh, and a little bit of pain
On a cloudy day, it's more common than you think He's my first mistake
 Maybe you were all faster than me
We gave each other up so easily These silly little wounds will never mend
I feel so far from where I've been
So I go, and I will not be back here again I'm gone as the day is fading on white houses
I lie, put my injuries all in the dust
In my heart is the five of us
In white houses

And you, maybe you'll remember me
What I gave is yours to keep
In white houses
In white houses
In white houses
