you were such a sweet machine,
shiny at the moment I unwrapped you, easy in the time it takes to ask you,
but we said things we didn’t mean,
promises and more than I could hope for, maybe it was kinder to be hopeful,
+++ of every little ghost that comes to haunt my country
+++ it’s you I miss the most, you always left me wanting more..

she reminded me of snow,
quiet as she’s covering the landscape, I could disappear beneath that blanket,
but we could not escape the cold,
+++ driving down the coast you said you’re drawn to water,
+++ how was I to know you’d always be a stranger?
+++ of every little ghost that comes to haunt my country,
+++ it’s you I miss the most, you always left me wanting
more.. more.. more..

quiet as you’re covering the landscape, I could disappear beneath that blanket,
shiny at the moment I unwrapped you, easy in the time it takes to ask you,
+++ all along the road with galaxies between us,
+++ how was I to know how easily you’d leave?
+++ of every little ghost that comes to haunt my country
+++ it’s you I miss the most, you always left me wanting
more.. more.. more…
