Frost melts off the tracks to reveal a fresh layer of rust

So let's follow them past the horizon

Until we reach a shady knoll where we can sit for an hour or two

And you'll tell me about your nightmares

And I'll tell you that I don't dream

You'll find yourself wishing that I'd open up to you

At first you'll think I'm shy But I can't tell a lie to you -

This summertime love affair was born to be ephemeral.

And you feel slightly scarred by the words that they speak:

Cute stories from your childhood you've erased from your memory

Now I've found a place for us to be

It's on the border between sarcasm and irony.

Maybe we can step aside from our cruel and cold and loveless lives, If only for a day.

She picked me up in her father's car

She asked me to go for a drive with her

I said "let's drive to the border"

I said "let's drive south of the border

Then let's head south, to the border of that border

To a border town in Texas or New Mexico

And why stop there when we're doing so well? -

Let's head south past one border more."
