Roman Candles

APPEARS ON


Spreadneck speedball way to highway
Needle is broken no telling on gas
A highway dog plays Russian roulette
In and out of the sun under the overpass

Why on earth they say only heaven knows
Why we turn every last word ever heard on each other
Over where everybody goes I know
I think therefore I am because I am or so I thought I was
When in Rome they say shoot Roman candles that way
Nobody thinks you’re crazy

Passing it back and forth like a fifth of July
Realize I can’t tell you what to tell yourself
But it was still not what you thought you wanted
You can’t deny it we were something else

Oh oh my love
Why on earth they say only heaven knows

Why we turn every last word ever heard on each other
Over where everybody goes I know
I think therefore I am because I am or so I thought I was
When in Rome they say shoot Roman candles that way
Nobody thinks you’re crazy

We don’t leave who we fell for
We leave who we can’t believe they have become
Oh oh oh my love
Leaving I don't mind
As much as getting left behind

Why on earth they say only heaven knows
While we turn every last word ever heard on each other
Over where everybody goes
I think therefore I am because I am or so I thought I was
When in Rome they say shoot Roman candles that way
Nobody thinks you’re crazy
You’re crazy
Nobody thinks you’re crazy
