and we're riding in the back
Snow shadows falling on the dash
...And the meter runs
lights change and the meter runs
Marking time across the north of city
Turn the corner
Another wide and vacant street
I'm seized with trepidation
A flock of light through your hair
I hope with never reach our destination
It's quiet outside
and the blankness of your eyes
But I'm not even really listening
'Cause it's loud inside here
Amidst the chatter of my fears
Gnawing through each shallow breath that I'm taking
Turn the corner, and the meter runs
Slide my hand across the seat, feeling yours receiving my caress
Savouring this tentative grasp, this not-knowing
Much easier than really letting go or actually holding on...
I can see your breath
Even the highway's silent beside us
Standing in foot of snow
You're telling me you gotta go
You wrap me with your sober embrace.
