[Verse 1]
We're never done with killing time
Can I kill it with you?
Till the veins run red and blue
We come around here all the time
Got a lot to not do, let me kill it with you

[Pre-Chorus]
You pick me up and take me home again
Head out the window again
We're hollow like the bottles that we drain
You drape your wrists over the steering wheel
Pulses can drive from here
We might be hollow, but we're brave

[Chorus]
And I like you
I love these roads where the houses don't change
And I like you
Where we can talk like there's something to say
And I like you
I'm glad that we stopped kissing the tar on the highway
And I like you
We move in the tree streets
I'd like it if you stayed

[Verse 2]
Now we're wearing long sleeves, and the heating comes on
You buy me orange juice
We're getting good at this
Dreams of clean teeth
I can tell that you're tired
But you keep the car on
While you're waiting out front

You pick me up and take me home again
Head out the window again
We're hollow like the bottles that we drain
You drape your wrists over the steering wheel
Pulses can drive from here
We might be hollow, but we're brave

And I like you
I love these roads where the houses don't change
And I like you
Where we can talk like there's something to say
And I like you
I'm glad that we stopped kissing the tar on the highway
And I like you
We move in the tree streets
I'd like it if you stayed

We're never done with killing time
Can I kill it with you?
Till the veins run red and blue
We come around here all the time
Got a lot to not do, let me kill it with you

And I like you
I love these roads where the houses don't change
And I like you
Where we can talk like there's something to say
And I like you
I'm glad that we stopped kissing the tar on the highway
And I like you
We move in the tree streets
I'd like it if you stayed
