fat tires and cigarettes
romeos and juliets
another night of crazy bets
that everyone survives
with no scars and no regrets
you wait it out like a seasoned vet
letting go can look like that
before you realize

you can sing
you can believe
you can be anything you want
all the time
day or night
you can be anything you want

tank full of gasoline
long gone the look serene
strapped in like a tired marine
with many miles to go
you used to be a summer rain
not too old and not too vain
long before you learned the game
that now you’re stuck inside

but you can sing…

over the line over the line
far far too driven
and losing our minds
it’s a beautiful night
a beautiful sunrise
did we ever notice
are we too blind

fat tires and cigarettes
romeos and juliets
stinging losses deep regrets
that everybody hides
in coffee shops and magazines
choir lofts and college flings
did everybody lose their dreams
out on the playground

    General CommentThis song is my #1 favorite off this Album. If you haven't heard and you like this Band this you owe it to yourself to check it out. Lori had such a disarming Voice. I find is so beautiful.
