lyrics

sleeping trucks at night
darling don’t forget the light you saved
everything is empty
and insecure
but in the evening of the halftime
what could have been that first time
i’ve never felt so sure
i’ve never felt
it started as flowers
as innocent as flowers
how could i get this far
how could i get this far
but it’s the things for which i worry
they only make me scurry
i’ve never felt so sure
so insecure

but in the moment you have found
in the moment you have found
your last obsession

sleeping trucks in the daytime
i’m here so let’s make time
i’m falling into you
don’t have a choice or clue
of your thoughts encased in bubbles
wrapped in leaves from muddy puddles
i can’t find our stage
please rearrange
it started as roses
as violent sensed as roses
prick the skin i’m bleeding thin
drip down to make an end
to all the things we’ll never do here
i’ll go and make a new year
i’ve never been so strange
i’ve never been

but in the moment you have found
in the moment you have found
your last obsession

sleeping through all tomorrow
bleating calves in my marrow
set the scene and please contain
thoughts so keenly pre-arranged
of when you left for college
crying mist in the fall
and burning fields smell of sage
cut the cord and drain
it started as violets
as ethereal as violets
licking stamps in malaise
jules’ letters that didn’t save
that dear boy from his damned fate
drops of lust of his one mate
he can’t see her thighs
out of romance

in the moment you have found
in the moment you have found
your last obsession
