this is a very creepy song. children and small animals probably shouldn't listen to it.


when my car wouldn't start, we left it out by the bayou
hitch-hiked 40 miles to the nearest gasoline station
found a cheap motel where we could spend the night talking
about your fear of highways and trips out on the ocean
while the battery lay spent out in the great wide open

you slept so close to me that you touched me for the first time
& that's how i found out about the scar from your ex-boyfriend
& the way that you shake when you're trying hard not to open
brushed away that insight, so that i wouldn't be left haunted
by the ghost of the bayou that looked over my shoulder
while i did what i had to do to put you back in order

in the morning i confessed, broke right down beside you
that i'd left the lights on just so i could get inside you
