LEIF VOLLEBEKK

ALL NIGHT SEDANS

You was up to something
I was up to nothing
It was bound to happen anyway
Rain in the streetlights
You in the midnights
We could’ve had it any day
A fire was raging down at the station
It’s not ours to worry about you said
No truth at all
I shoulda made the call
Half a favour is no favour at all

Wish it could’ve been another way

You’re sharp, you’re clear
You’re there and you’re near
But you’re too close for me to see
The way that it was
Not despite but because
Will live in eternity
Go tell Celeste
Who loved you the best
As rain’s falling in the street
Florescent lights pounding
In the neighbourhood store
Little bell rang when you came in the door

Wish it could’ve been another way

Now I’m driving
All night sedans
All the things I should’ve done
Well I do what I can
Listening to the radio as it plays on in my mind
How easily I lose the time

Wish it could’ve been another way
