lyrics

I could drive all night with the radio on,
Like the dust I could drift over this life,
Over this road I’m rolling on,
Leaving everything I had behind.

I travel far, chase the stars,
In the lonely night,
I’m watching yellow lines no track of time,
It’s a quiet kind of life,
Going down the same old roads.

And on the radio...
Your body and mine,
Dripping in the heat,
Fever sweet,
Summertime round mid-July,
You body and mine baby.

I was stupid, we were young,
I knew you were my weakness,
Cut you first then I asked you for your love,
And you shot me down… bang bang.

It’s a haunting peace, It’s a silent prayer,
It’s a struggle for my life when I get lost and I got nowhere else to go,
This road has gotta lead somewhere.

Cause I’ve been running,
Living for the money,
I’m crying like it’s funny,
That this is the only thing I know now,
And it’s too late to turn around.

And on the radio...
Your body and mine,
Dripping in the heat,
Fever sweet,
Summertime round mid-July,
You body and mine baby.

I was stupid, we were young,
I knew you were my weakness,
Cut you first then I asked you for your love,
And you shot me down… bang bang.

And I don’t want your memories to stay with me,
A regret that I can’t seem to drown.
Yet, here you are, playing on the radio,
Calling me back through the sound.

I don’t want your love I don’t want your wars,
I don’t need that heartbreak anymore.
I don’t want your love I don’t want your wars,
No, I don’t want a love like yours.

And now you’re fading out...
Your body and mine,
Dripping in the heat,
Fever sweet,
Summertime round mid-July,
You body and mine baby.

I was stupid, we were young,
I knew you were my weakness,
Cut you first,
Then I asked you for your love,
And you shot me down… bang bang.

And yeah it’s fading out...
Your body and mine,
Dripping in the heat,
Fever sweet,
Summertime round mid-July,
You body and mine baby.

I was stupid, we were young,
I knew you were my weakness,
Cut you first,
Then I asked you for your love,
And you shot me down… bang bang.

Bang Bang.
Bang Bang.
My baby shot me down.
