[Verse:]
He's in a white car waiting for the light to change
He's a buddy of mine, but I can’t complain.

He can make a lot of money, he can touch his toes
He knows you never look till the lights are low.

[Chorus:]
I love you and you love me, So we never demand and we never agree.
I love you and you love me and there’s new fruit humming in the old fruit trees.

[Verse:]
He's in a white car waiting in a parking lot,
He’s jealous of me and what we’ve got.

He can buckle his belt and he can shine his shoe
But he can never end up where I found you.

[Chorus:]
I love you and you love me, So we don’t talk back and we don’t say please.
I love you and you love me and there’s new fruit humming in the old fruit trees.

[Verse:]
He's in a white car waiting for the rain to pass
He’s a buddy of mine, but that won’t last.

Cause he ain't the dumb grin on an empty cup
We both took him for when he showed up.

[Chorus:]
Cause I love you and you love me, so we both get stuck and we both get free.
I love you and you love me and there’s new fruit humming in the old fruit trees.

    Ok, just my thoughts. The "low light buddy" is himself/the singer of the song/yourself. That dark part of ourselfs that we wish wasn't there but is. We all have a good side and a bad side of our character and it's a battle between which side of ourselve's is the stronger. The woman lover (could also be a man) has made a positive influence on him and that is why he can say "He's a buddy of mine, but that won't last". Say goodby to the old, negative aspect of self (Buddy) and welcome the new (positive) self (new fruit humming). A really nice song. I love the saxaphone solo.
