Lyrics

The afternoon light
And the sounds from the highway
It’s three thirty one
I hear you shower in the next room
And despite everything I know to be true
Of this kind of rendezvous
I’m laughing
While the blade goes through
I’m laughing
Staring down at you
Come to the window
They’re making a movie on the desert
You can see the flashing of the guns
(and the girl and the stardust...)
The campers and the trailers
The real story my dear
Is going on in here
But we can’t tell anyone
We’re laughing
While the blade goes through
We’re laughing through an afternoon
Oh and I’ll wake up
And hear the sound of waves
Careful on this bridge we’ve made
The other side is burning down
While the blade goes through
I’m laughing
Staring up at you
Another afternoon
Of laughing
Staring up at you
Now where do we go from here?
I don’t know
