So what's the difference between bones and car parts anyway?
When your heart is broken the rest of you is expendable
Oh, what a pretty way of screaming out each other's names
With the flashing lights we fell in love again
Oh no

Your smiling face turned into sparks
The night had reached it peak for sure
Can we retrace the tire marks
And laugh at where we were before?

So if we died last night our rather beautiful insides
Would have become one with the cloth upholstery

Our screeching wheel ballet premiere had opened with a smash
Took an ambulance to the reception at the hospital
I didn't know I could sport crutches with such brilliant class
You brought x-rays back in fashion with your kneecap show

You held my hand with so much love
As I lay strapped down to a bed
If this was planned to save our souls
We barely hung on by a thread

So if we died last night our rather beautiful insides
Would have become one with the cloth upholstery
If we died last night would you have kissed me goodbye
Before I eagerly ate the airbag?

Never felt so happy just to hear you breathe
Or so lucky that you were holding on to me
This occasion calls for some affection, dear
Tonight we're both right here

If we had just sort of died last night
Our young and innocent insides
Would have been wasted on the cold gray road
I might have died last night
So please, please kiss me goodbye
Before the high beams turn to moonlight
