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 CommentOpen Car is actually set in the O.C. (Orange County, California)
    "Summer dress" is a reference to the character "Summer" on the popular TV show [i]The O.C.[/i]

    "You think you're smart
    I think you're art
    We agree on this"
    Summer thinks she's smart while she isn't. Ryan thinks her body is a work of art while it isn't. (Ryan obviously has no appreciation for art.)

    *spoilers below*



    This is basically Ryan having sex with Summer after Marissa died. Not incest, but it is immoral nonetheless. Friends don't sleep with each other's girlfriends, and Summer is Ryan's best friend's girlfriend.

    *spoilers end*

    Finally, "an open car" is the type of car you see in California all the time. Because it doesn't rain much there.
