"All night home" as written by and Mark Linkous....
Shining motorcycle
Through the trees we rifle

We're gonna drive
All night home
We're gonna drive
All night home

Down to West Virginia
Like the blood within ya

We're gonna drive
All night home
We're gonna drive
All night home

Shining motorcycle
All her worries stifled

We're gonna drive
All night home
We're gonna drive
All night home

This ought to hold her now
This ought to hold her now
This ought to hold her now
This ought to hold her now

    General CommentA sleepy song... makes you feel like you're coming home from a camping trip or something, and you're on the back of a motorcycle, and everything seems sort of surreal as you're whizzing down the highway. This song feels late at night. It feels half asleep.

    "This ought to hold her now..." I love that part. Such quintessential Sparklehorse there. Lord knows what it means; maybe he's referring to the bike? Maybe it busted and he made a quick fix.

    Obviously I don't exactly have great insight. But this song is lovely.

    General CommentI agree on this being a sleepy song. It reminds me of being a little kid dozing off in the back of the car late at night, in and out of consciousness and seeing the tops of trees and street lamps going by.
