Safe

It was early for a summer
All the people and the noise from the bar
You in your gray dress, your arm on the window
You said: “What’s the difference?” “What’s the difference?”

Just say it to me, just say it to me
Let’s not make it a thing
It’ll be OK, babe.

And that was love when we were sober
You’re so nervous and all when the air’s getting colder

OK.

Everything, everything, it’s everything

“Do you really want to hear that?
Why is everyone staring?
Were you happy? Were you honest?
Did you ever believe that any of this was real?”

OK just slow down now
This road’s not safe for driving
All this time I’ve wanted
Just one thing from you.

Just say it to me
I don’t care if you mean it.

OK just slow down now
This road’s not safe for driving
All this time I’ve waited
Just for you to let me in.

So you got out of the car
You left your bag in the backseat and walked inside

And that was love.
