"Boys" as written by and Kami Lyle....
Boys in this town got the same disguise
They got soda shop smiles and rocking horse eyes
They'd paint their mother as the Devil
Eat a sugared bowl of flies
Just to sign their name on another set of thighs
Just to sign their name on another set of thighs
I put your picture in my pocket, and I put on some perfume
Saw you smiling in my wallet as I walked the empty room
Now gone is my jewelry
My leather jacket, too
I pawned them all for freedom and one slow dance with you

[Chorus:]
Grab a piece of autumn
Rub it in my hair
Put some winter in my pocket
Keep me safe till I get there
Spring is just a jukebox
I don't have time to play
Got a lover made of summer
And this dog needs one more day

Moss covers the moon like an old headstone
Got an arm out the window, singing to the radio
Pull that night air in and let it guide me home
'Cause it's hard to stay awake when you're driving all alone
So hard to stay awake when you're driving all alone

[Chorus]

Now I see the flames churning and my suitcase down below
I'm rising up to Heaven, and I don't want to go
I'm shouting out words to a song I don't know
And shooting at the stars with somebody else's bow
Shooting at the stars with somebody else's bow

Grab a piece of autumn
Rub it in my hair
Put some winter in my pocket
Keep me safe till I get there
Spring is just a jukebox
I don't have time to play
Got a lover made of summer
