And she runs through her days with a smile on her face
And she runs, and she waits, and I wait
We can drive to anyplace, day or night, across the state
And in the morning, into Mexico, we will wake up
I find a window in the kitchen, and I let myself in
Rummage through the refrigerator, find myself a beer
I can’t believe I’m really here, and she’s lying in that bed
I can almost feel her touch, and her anxious breath!
I stumble in the hallway, against the bedroom door
I hear her call out to me, I hear the fear in her voice
She pulls the covers tighter, I press against the door
I will be with her tonight!
I know it sounds a bit twisted but this is one of my all time favorite songs to sing along to. After reading the lyrics it sounds like a song about rape but I prefer to interperet it as a more happy song about a desire for relationships. Besides the melody is so wonderfully happy sounding that I could never interperet it as dark as some of the lyrics suggest.
Am I sick for loving this song?
