Yeah, my dad was the king of the backroads
Still is
So many trees passing us by
So much silence
What is there to say when you're alone?
Sometimes you are alone
And there is a person sitting right there
Next to you
She came into my life
Like a light
She could walk the fine lines of the cracks in my heart
Her naked feet stepped through the halls of my cavernous soul
There are roads that lead to goddess
And there are windows waiting to be broken open…

They try to break the rind
Believing they might find
A bite of fruit so kind
It could dissolve their insecurity
But at the generous core
A liquid spirit roars
So fierce, and true, and sweet
It tears the bag
And rots their teeth

Remember that old stretch of road we would speed down
Flying over the railroad tracks
Having the cops chase us down
Throwing us in the back of their cars

Blood grows quicker through veins
You pull me closer, lover
Pull me out of my shame
You lift the light, sugar
You break open the frame
You lift the light, sugar
You break open the frame

La la, la la la la, la la
La la, la la la la, la la
