Take the long way home
In your father's Ford
Watch the road
Wind over the dashboard
Pass the lonesome oak trees
The wind whistles a chill
With your hand on my knee
I can't sit still

The darkness of the woods
The damp cold air
Turn the engine off
Run your fingers through my hair
Lock the door
Roll up the window
Your body feels so warm
Turn down the radio

Your breath on my neck 
Heats the autumn eve
Don't stop to check 
The rustling of the leaves
A scratching at the window
As footsteps become plain
Our shadows aren't alone
On Lovers' Lane

The darkness at the door
Clawing to get in
Slivers of moonlight
Illuminate a grin
Start the car 
Get back to the main road
Guided by the stars
Turn up the radio
