"Dark Garage" as written by and Tom Brosseau....
I dragged my hands across the bars
And ran along with the evening bridge
And I thought of all the things I knew
That never meant that much to me
Playing cards in the spokes
And mama's laundry is on the ground
Had fallen from the clothesline
When we pulled the pins, one by one

Missy's got cherry lips
And I can taste it when we kiss
She always has a brand new coat
Of paint at her fingertips
Drive a silver Grand Marquis
All the way from '83
Smoke with all the windows up
And then she sprays perfume when we leave

We go swimming west of here
In a town where no-one knows your name
And at the bottom of the hole
I cut myself on an empty can
The water is black and soft with clay
And cold as any winter's day
We left it for the innocent
Let the wind blow us away

There's a gentle sound when the fridge turns on
Towards the back of the dark garage
By the time I get used to it
It just seems to fade
It was a nice display, the ladder was
But it's missing every other rung
I wondered if I'd climb it
But I bet you that I never would
