Hawksley Workman – Tonight Romanticize The Automobile lyrics

We kiss alone
In a parked car
At least I think so
There's a flashlight waving
Out somewhere
You can see it down the road
And the saddest part
Is that we mean so well
Don't want to hurt anything
Don't want to hurt
This fragile love we know
Because there is nothing left to hold
And we prayed that night
And you said to me
"Don't worry baby
The worst has come and the worst will go
And there's nothing we don't know"
I'll believe you then
But you know me
And I always think the worst
So be satisfied
And it's hard but I'll try

To not romanticize the automobile

So come with me then
By the lakeside
Smell the death there
Where a plane did fall
And a boat sunk too
You'll be terrified to know
That I fantasize
About a way to die
Nothing glorified
Someone falls asleep
On a late night road
Like a mercy for us both
I'll believe you then
But you know me
And I always think the worst
