we drive tonight,
and you are by my side.
We're talking about our lives,
like we've known each other forever.
the time flies by,
with the sound of your voice.
its close to paradise,
with the end surely near.
if i could only stop the car
and hold onto you,
and never let go...
i'll never let go.
as we round the corner
to your house
you turned to me and said,
"i'll be going through withdrawl of you for this one night we have spent."
and, i want to speak these words
but i guess i'll just bite my tongue,
and accept "someday, somehow"
as the words that we'll hang from.
and i... don't want to speak these words.
cause i, don't want to make things anyworse.
why does tonite, have to end?
why don't we hit restart,
and pause it at our favorite parts.
we'll skip the goodbyes.
if i had it my way,
i'd turn the car around and runaway,
just you and i.
and i... don't want to speak these words.
cause i, don't want to make things anyworse.

    General Commentanother poetic masterpiece..it seems as if his love for this girl is somehow forbidden,either she has a boyfriend or something with her family who knows but it seems like they snuck out to see each other..he doesnt want to the night to end cuz hes not sure when he'll see her next..wow..gotta love it

    General Commenti so love this song... it makes me real sad though. it may be about this girl who forced herself to be withdrawn to the guy she likes coz she's moving away and she doesn't want to make things more miserable for both of them. just maybe. i can so relate. why is it entitled tiger lily anyway?

    General CommentI saw them last night... when they played this song, he said he wrote it about a girl who broke up with him not too long ago. He said, "...but that's what love's all about, you know? It can make you feel like shit but it can also show you the best fucking things in life. Sing as loud as you can..."

    Favorite line: And accept 'someday, somehow' as the words that we'll hang from.
