"Laundry Room" lyrics - THE AVETT BROTHERS

"Laundry Room"
(Scott Yancey Avett / Timothy Seth Avett / Robert William Crawford Jr.)

Don't push me out
Just a little longer
Stall your mother
Disregard your father's words

Close the laundry door
Tiptoe across the floor
Keep your clothes on
I got all that I can take
Teach me how to use
The love that people say you made

Stop your parents' car
I just saw a shooting star
We can wish upon it
But we won't share the wish we made
But I can't keep no secrets
I wish that you would always stay

Last night I dreamt the whole night long
I woke with a head full of songs
I spent the whole day
I wrote 'em down, but its a shame
Tonight I'll burn the lyrics
'Cause every chorus was your name

Break this tired old routine
And this time don't make me leave

I am a breathing time machine
I'll take you all for a ride
