when she's got to say goodbye
after staying out late on a weeknight
and I walk on the side of the road
under industrial lights
it can be such a shame
how short the night and day

all that I've been for so long
is trying to get right here
and sometimes I can't make myself shuck and jive
perfection's on her tongue rolls out in monotone
that's where the heartache goes
and I do the same you know
I do the same you know
here's the final row
I do the same you know
it's just you can't see it
chips and dip

when she's got to say good-bye
staying out late on a week night
sometimes I can't make myself shuck and jive
cause where the heartache goes
I do the same you know
I do the same you know

    General CommentI just thought about how this song sounds like the hopeful opening of a love story and how chips and dip are traditionally the opening of most meals in Austin, TX. You can order pancakes and they'll bring you chips and dip for apps.

    General CommentBest song of the EP, sounds like the end of a great night out and they're both sad to say goodbye, although I don't know what "shuck and jive" means. anybody?
