Ani Difranco – Gravel lyrics

I heard the sound of your bike,
As your wheels hit the gravel,
Then your engine in the driveway
Cutting off
And i pushed through the screen door
And i stood out on the porch
Thinking figh, fight, fight
At all costs,
But instead i let you in,
Just like i've always done
And i sat you down and offered you a beer
And across the kitchen table
I fired several rounds,
But you were still sitting here
When the smoke cleared.
And you came crawling back
To say that you wanna
Make good in the end

And oh, oh,
Let me count the ways
That i abhore you,
And you were never a good lay
And you were never a good friend
But, oh, oh, what else can i say...
I adore you

All i need is my leather,
One t-shirt and two socks,
I'll keep my hands warm
In your pockets
And we can use the engine block,
And we'll ride out to california
With my arms around your chest,
And i'll pretend that this is real
'cuz this is what i like best,
And you've been juggling two women
Like a stupid circus clown
Telling us both we are the one
And maybe you can keep me from ever being happy,
But you're not gonna stop me from having fun.
So let's go before i change my mind
I'll leave the luggage of all your lives behind
'cuz i am bigger than everything that came before

And you were never very kind,
And you let me way down every time
But oh, oh, oh what can i say...
I adore you

I heard the sound of your bike,
As your wheels hit the gravel,
Then your engine in the driveway
Cutting off
