"It's getting late"
She said
She touched my face
"Let's stay out late as we can"

We'll drive around the lake
Just a little too fast
My eyes on the lights
Her hand on my shoulder
Yeah, windows down
The wine in our heads
The city lights just blur
The city lights just blur

Let's go out
On a dock
We'll bring a bottle and a blanket
And everything
Yeah, everything
Everything is going our way

We'll drive around the lake
Just a little too fast
My eyes on the lights
Her hand on my shoulder
Yeah, windows down
The wine in our heads
The city lights just blur
The city lights just blur

Lean in to me

We'll drive around the lake
Just a little too fast
My eyes on the lights
Her hand on my shoulder
Yeah, windows down
The wine in our heads
The city lights just blur
The city lights just blur
The city lights just . . .

    General Commentyeah it's a great song.
    they are falling in love. they had a few glasses of wine. they feel free. they dont need to think about the problems, their problems, all they want is to enjoy the moment. they feel free. they are young. they want to do everything and they feel there's nothing they can't do. what could be better than this? it's more than just 'a great night', it's THE night :)

    General Commenttheir lyrics are fucking amazing. they're so simple and honest, no flowery bullshit. this song is about what it's about. drinking wine and driving around a lake with girls.

    General CommentEveryone and their mother is crazy about Minus The Bear. I didn't think much of them at first, but now that I've given the album a good listen or 12, I, too, love Minus The Bear...well, not as much as their song titles.

    General Commentwithout a doubt minus the bear rock-- and without the pretenses that a lot of bands have. it's just damn good music, that doesn't try too hard. and nothing beats a wine drunk, especially with a new love...

    General CommentI love MTB lyrics! Other bands can be so convoluted. Each MTB song is a snapshot - a portrait of a moment. I think everyone can relate. Who doesn't want to relive the best moments in his/her life?
