lyrics

drove six hours on the turnpike
for one more cigarette with you
lost the muffler outside breezewood
i'm coming fast, i'm coming loud

maybe we're looking for
something we thought we knew
when we thought we knew what to look for
maybe we never found
everything left to find

(found you a hat at a thrift shop but it looks good on me
so i kept it)

if we end up at your apartment
you might just help me burn it down
or make a bed out on the old green couch
blankets someone's grandma made
and my second favorite pillow

and you say wow this is nice
feels like how it used to be
back in the day
before all we had to talk about
was how things back in the day
used to be

and i say what happened to us
and you say happening, we're always happening, que sera sera
and you take a deep breath, hold it behind your eyes
and let it go

real life
in real time
real life in real time
real life
in real time
real life in real time

drove six hours on the turnpike
for one more cigarette with you
wind the windows down
turn the volume up
is there gas in the car
yeah.

i met the devil on the corner of bates and atwood street
traded him my immortal soul
for an old guitar, a bucket of deep fried chicken,
some tennessee opium, and a velvet print of francisco pizzarro
i wrote ethereal songs of love and life and girls and you
trying to find some love in this life with a girl like you
and now i found it

i like it

real life
in real time
real life in real time
real life
in real time
real life in real time
real life
in real time
real life in real time
