At a Red Light

As I drive home in the silence 

I feel the burning on my lips

the words are at a loss

for the thing I just did 

 

Pulled in the driveway  

but the engine never stopped 

my mouth just kept going 

something must have kept it propped 

 

I put up my gaurd through the window 

but I surrendered to a touch 

I close my eyes to lose control 

and now I think I've done too much 

 

I took my foot off the break for a sec 

and before I could even take a breath 

in uncharted territory, I'm lost 

roaming and searching which pedal to press 

 

Buckled up I just sat at the wheel 

my hands just below nine and three 

before I knew it we shifted gear 

mans I was in the passenger seat 

 

My engine stalled and I found reverse 

I hit the gas and I was gone 

nothing played on the radio 

except the dead air of a cheap love song
