"Shark Smile" as written by and Adrianne Lenker....
She was a shark smile in a yellow van
She came around and I stole a glance in my youth
A vampire
Evelyn shown quiet as roses sting
It came over me at a bad time
But who wouldn't ride on a moonlit line?
Had her in my eye, 85 down the road of a dead end gleam

And she said woo
Baby, take me
And I said woo
Baby, take me too

It came over her at a bad time
Riding through Winona down the dotted line
Held us gunning out
Ninety miles down the road of a dead end dream
She looked over with a part smile
Caught up in the twinkle, it could take awhile
And the money pile on the dashboard fluttering

As she said woo
Baby, take me
And I said woo
Baby, take me too

Evelyn's kiss was oxygen
I leaned over to take it in
As we went howling through the edge of south Des Moines
It came over me at a bad time
She burned over the double line
And she impaled as I reached my hand for the guardrail
Ooh, the guardrail
Ooh, the guardrail

And she said woo
Baby, take me
And I said woo
Baby, take me too

She said woo
Baby, take me
And I said woo
Baby, take me too

    Song Meaning"'Shark Smile' is the story of a car accident in which one dies and one lives," singer and guitarist Adrianne Lenker writes in a press release. "She recalls her lover leading up to the moment of the wreck, wishing she'd been taken into the next realm, too." (copied from npr all songs considered)

    General CommentIt's probably

    Evelyn shone quiet as a rose's sting

    and not

    Evelyn shown quiet as roses sting
