lyrics

I want you like pennies in the water
Tossed myself
A sweaty start
Like a bike ride through the deep dark suburbs
I’m turning red
Red of a heart

'Introduce you to all of my friends
She’s such a pretty girl
Hope the attention tastes sweet
Like chocolate vanilla swirl
And a sweet sweet lip in my mouth
A song in my head

CHORUS

Putting my hands on your head
Fingers through scarlet hair
Tangling passenger seat
Seatbelts and glasses off
The lights of a passing car distract me
I turn my head

CHORUS

Girl in the passenger seat
Girl with the tender foot
Didn’t realize the pain you were in
Sure didn’t mean to be a jerk
So I let your red balloon go
I watched float away

I want you like pennies in the water
Tossed myself
A sweaty start
Like a streetlight through
The deep dark winter
I’m covering up
Quilt of a heart
