Nothing like this
Felt in her kiss
Cannot resist her
Fell for her charm
Lost in her arms
I keep a photograph
Give me a glimpse
Let me come in
Be there inside her
Here it begins
Here is the sin
Something to lie about

You think you're smart
I think you art
We agree on this
It doesn't work
Feeling like dirt
Feeling like you don't care
We get a room
And in her gloom
She lights a cigarette
Clothes on the bed
Love me, she said
I lose myself to her

I'm getting feelings I'm hiding too well
Bury the heart-shaped shell
Something broke inside my stomach
I let the pieces lie just where they fell
Being with you is hell

Hair blown in an open car
Summer dress slips down her arm
Hair blown in an open car

Okay what's next?
After the sex
What do we do now?
Finding the time
Drawing the line
And never crossing it
Gave her the hours
Gave her the power
Cannont erase her
Gave her the truth
Gave her the proof
I gave her everything

I'm getting feelings I'm hiding too well
Bury the heart-shaped shell
(I hide the feelings far too well)
Something broke inside my stomach
I let the pieces lie just where they fell
(I left the pieces where they fell)
Being with you is hell

Hair blown in an open car
Summer dress slips down her arm
Hair blown in an open car
On a drive out to the farm
Hair blown in an open car

Hair blown in an open car
Summer dress slips down your arm
Hair blown in an open car

    General CommentTo im_a_pirate:
    steven wilson has been making psychedelic and prog for so long, that he takes it for granted. he doesn't think porcupine tree music/lyrics are any more complex than the average rock band, because he takes it for granted. he works with opeth (a progressive metal legend) and he probably already forgot how non-complex a rock band could be (Opeth is like 50 times more complex than a pop punk Simple Plan).

    also, steven wilson has been known for hiding the true meanings beneath his words, especially after Blackwater Park. I wouldn't take his words when he said "I don't think we are a progressive rock band" or "Porcupine Tree music is very very simple". He probably said that for a purpose only known to him: 1. Maybe he just grew tired of the word "progressive" and wanted to be marketed as something new (as I said, he has been making prog for a very long time). 2. Maybe he wanted to stress the "complexity" of "the way the albums are constructed". So Steven, would you like us to call you "epic rock" or "construction rock"?

    some fans are able to listen to Porcupine Tree without realizing it's prog. I guess this is one of the reasons why they're special.
