GRAVEL

I heard the sound of your bike
as your wheels hit the gravel
and then your engine in the driveway cutting off
and i pushed the the screen door
and i stood out on the poarch
thinking fight fight fight
at all costs
but instead i let you in
just like i'v always done
and I sat you down an offered you a beer
and across the kitchen table
I fired several rounds
and you were still sitting there
when the 
smoke cleared
and you came crawling back to say
you want to make good in the end
and oh oh, let me count the ways, that I abhor, you
and you were
never a good lay 
and you were
never a good friend
but oh oh, oh what can I say
I adore, you

oh, oh oh oh oh oh etc.

all i need is my leather
one tshirt and two socks
I'll keep my hands warm in your pockets 
and you can use the engine blocks
and we'll ride off to california
with my arms around your chest
and i'll pretend that this is real
cause this is what I like best
and you've been juggeling two women, like a stupid circus clown
telling us both we are the one
and maybe you can keep me
from ever being happy
but you're not going to stop me
from, having fun

so lets go
before I change my mind
leave the luggage, of all your lies behind
cause I am better than everything that
came, before
and you were, never very kind
you let me way down every time
and oh oh what can i say
i adore, you

oh oh oh oh oh oh etc.

i heard the sound of your bike
as your wheels hit the gravel
and your engine in the driveway cutting off
