To me the only thing left after a while
Was that night we watched
Documentaries up through morning
And then you kicked me out

You opened up your screen door
And threw me out off the porch
It was summer then and I drove home whistling
Muddy waters down the pike

And that was that: Our one sweet night together
Under highway signs
I watched our love start fluttering and dissipating
I counted all the headlights to make sure I was alright

Now I'm wondering
Is it me or is it me that can't see silver linings?
So I fucked it up I watched you go
I saw my hand not dialing the phone

All I'm left to do is remember the dull room
Where we sat in blue stream light
Watching the strike of '59
I dreamed of wrecking my underwear
Oh can't I touch your cheeks somewhere
Under dirt filled rainy nights
With my socks stuck in the mud
Please come dive in puddles with me

Our one sweet night together
Our one sweet night together
Our one sweet night together
Under highway signs
I watched our love start fluttering and dissipating
I counted all the headlights to make sure I was alright
