We breathe out and the words in the smoke fumes grow

Out our mouths, I'm leaving in a bad way, in a bad way

Acquaintances and friends comparing compliments all night

A flash of skeleton grins, discordant noise, the talking dims..



We got cold. Spent the night driving home

We swallowed road under bonnet. It all speeds by

And as the road unfolds, unfurling homes in the headlights

The space between your ears fills up with verse and tears..

    General CommentThe second stanza is absolutely beautiful, god. It just brings to mind driving late at night with the girl I love, staring into the darkness and listening to hauntingly beautiful music (like this song!)
