Love Will lyrics: Brookings, SD (Peron’s song)

Peron’s girlfriend of three years, Brooke, breaks up with him while he is touring with Damon’s band. The song gets its title from the next city they play, which they feel is a strange coincidence and a good opportunity to start the process of getting over her.

Brookings, SD aka the break-up song

I went out with a girl that I liked
She was tall, she was blonde, she was Brooke
It was love at first sight; I was psyched
But her feelings for me, I mistook

It was after a show when we met
And she offered her hand, which I shook
There was kissing and passion and sweat
And then late that first night, yeah we hook’d

Up and away
I went to play
Was already planned
Just me and my band
Nothing illicit
Loved her explicitly
Few months later
I’d learn to hate her

Just finished a gig at a club
In need of a rest, which I took
Got a text on my way to the pub
Was an incoming message from Brooke

“Hey, I think that it’s time that we talked.”
Least original line in the book.
Took her two texts to tell me.
I balked At this horrible plan that she’d cook’d

Up and away
I went to play
Was already planned
Just me and my band
Nothing illicit
Loved her explicitly
Few months later
I’d learn to hate her

She went on to fuck some other schmuck
She said it was love; fit her like a glove
The guy is a crook, ‘cause he stole my Brooke
Now she’s giving him head, in their newly-bought bed

Up and away
I went to play
Was already planned
Just me and my band
Nothing illicit
Loved her explicitly
Few months later
I’d learn to hate her

But I know one day soon, they’ll be kissing
And she’ll know he’s not right, and she’ll look
Just to see what’s she’s got, who she’s missing
But then when she comes back, I’ll be book’d

Up and away
I went to play
Was already planned
Just me and my band
Nothing illicit
Loved her explicitly
Few months later
I’d learn to hate her
