Small talk we had some-
thing long past the headlights
don’t last flooding gin an evening of
done-up hold on to this
you are in love you are
long past flooding gin small talk
you can feel it on the road home
relax and shift shorn of all the
boys long past this new one like
hold on to this headlights
don’t last something you had
an evening done-up and shorn of
worth long past you can feel it
on the road home.
