"Sunsets And Car Crashes" as written by and Nicholas Edward Thomas....
I see a sense of wonder
Deep inside your eyes
As we're sparkling and twirling
In the twilight
And after three long years,
I think that we both need this
So we seal the deal
In the parking lot with a kiss

And in case you
And in case you were wondering,
You are like a sunset to me
You're all kinds of beautiful
As you end my day
And you sweetly retire
As stars chase you away

I'd collapse to the grass,
With your notes ringing in my head
Let the rain fill my mouth,
And in a couple hours I'll be dead
But all the while my lips
Are whistling our tune
But the beauty lies in how
You will revive me soon

And in case you, and in case you
And in case you were wondering,
You are like a sunset to me
You're all kinds of beautiful
As you end my day
And you sweetly retire
As the stars chase you away

And in case you were wondering,
You are like a sunset to me
You're all kinds of beautiful
As you end my day
And you sweetly retire
As the stars chase you away

And in case you were wondering,
You are like a hurricane to me
Your violence is beautiful,
And your center sweet
Now tell me this,
Do you know how we'd meet?

And in case you were wondering,
You are everything to me (to me)

    General CommentI think the song is about a breakup. Here's my theory.

    'After 3 long years I think that we both need this. So we seal the deal in the parking lot with a kiss.'

    The couple have been together for 3 years and they think they need a break.

    'And in case you were wondering...'
    Telling her how he feels for her..very common after a breakup

    The lyrics are 'let the rain FILL my mouth and in a couple hours I'll be dead'

    'But the beauty lies in how you will revive me soon'

    The guy is depressed but knows that she will make everything better soon. Perhaps he knows they will be together again.

    That's my theory
