we were standing toe to toe
we were out there in the snow
you looked like a friend of mine
there were footprints on the ground
there were songs in my mouth
but i couldn’t get them out in time
we were lying on our backs
and the sky went black
you were pointing out some constellation
but will you whisper in my ear
how we threw away the years
now that would be a conversation

drown with a pencil on dry ground
let’s have a night on the town
get in this car and we’ll
drive around
get in this car
we’ll get out of this place
to county line road near the air force base
i’d kiss them tears
right off your face
get in this car
and get out of this place
to county line road near the air force base
i’d kiss them tears
right off your face

please put out the fire in your mind
please put out the fire
to this same old conversation
