lyrics

ONE NIGHT WHILE WANDERING THE EMPTY ROAD ALONG THE EMPTY FIELDS. ONE SUMMER NIGHT WHILE DRIVING FAR TOO FAST WITH ALL MY WINDOWS DOWN. YOU TURNED TO ME IN THE PASSENGER SEAT AND BIT YOUR LIP AND SHOWED YOUR TEETH.

I LOOKED DOWN AND SAW MY HAND REACHING OUT AND GOING DOWN. WHAT WAS HOLDING YOU DOWN? WHAT WAS KEEPING YOU DOWN? WHO AM I AND WHERE IS THIS TOWN?

YOU LOOKED OVER TO ME AND SMILED AND LEANED ONTO MY RIGHT KNEE. I FEEL THE SAME AS YOU DO AND MAYBE EVEN MORE SO, CAN YOU EVEN SPEAK? FOR ALL THE KINGDOMS OF THE WORLD RUN SUBTERRANEAN TO ME. EVERYTHING I’VE EVER TOLD YOU WAS ABSOLUTELY TOTALLY TRUE. DO YOU FEEL THAT FAR-FLUNG ACHING IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE.

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SUMMER HEAT.

REACH ACROSS YOUR HIPS AND FIND THAT BUCKLE AND PUSH THAT BUTTON UNTIL IT CLICKS. NOW YOU ARE FREE FROM THAT PESKY SEATBELT GREY NYLON.

UNZIP YOUR HEAD, UNZIP YOUR DRESS, KICK OFF THOSE SHOES LET’S FEEL UNDEAD. LET’S LEAN BACK, LET’S LAY DOWN, LET’S DIE HERE IT WON’T HURT INSIDE.

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT WHEN THE MOON HANGS LOW IN THE TIME WE HAVE BEFORE WE SLEEP.

HOW IMPOSSIBLE IS ALL THE LOVE IN THE WORLD FINDING US? HOW IMPOSSIBLE IS IT THAT THE MAN OF YOUR DREAMS DRIVES A BEAT-UP PICKUP TRUCK. HOW IS IT THAT WE CAN BE TOGETHER FOREVER AND IN THAT SPAN OF TIME, IT WAS MERELY A SECOND BUT I STILL CARRY YOUR KISS IN MY BACK POCKET.

I SEE YOU COMING I FEEL YOU CLOSE I SEE YOU WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES. I FEEL YOU IN MY HEART AND IN MY BLOOD AND EVERY NIGHT. ALL FOREVER IN ME. YOU AND ME IS THREE. WE ARE SPECIAL AND NEW AND FREE. FALLING SOFT AND SO PURE, I WILL TEAR DOWN THE WORLD JUST TO HEAR YOU PURR.

CAN YOU FEEL IT?
