lyrics

"She has a point, you know," she said
Well, that's great, darling. So what does that mean?
Ain't anybody on my side anymore?
You loved me before I knew your name
I loved you after you let me go
Well, no one will know If I cry a little bit more

Look back to falling asleep in my arms
Proving each cliche is as good as it seems
Thought it was you sleeping, how'd you awake me from my dreams?
My sleeping turned to habitual nights
Lying awake with your voice pumping through
Through the receiver, gorgeous mad trembling in my bloodstream

Headlights flash
Open windows, backseat ecstasy
Heartbeats clash
Open souls on a highway, we press on

"She has a point, you know," she said
Well that's great darling. So what does that mean?
Ain't anybody on my side anymore?
You loved me before I knew your name
I loved you after you let me go
Well, no one will know if I cry a little bit more

Headlights flash
Open windows, backseat ecstasy
Heartbeats clash
Open souls on a highway, we press on

Been navigating in circular paths
Tracing your name in the ocean's deep
Salty unknown, like the tears that fall on your picture
I can't leave at home
And these things I do... is it a crime
That I miss you?
That I could honestly say "tu es la fille pour moi?"
It's just the cards we draw

Headlights flash
Open windows, backseat reverie
Heartbeats clash
Open souls on a highway, we press on
Headlights flash
Open windows, backseat ecstasy
Heartbeats clash
Open souls on a highway, we press on!
