Twin human highway flares
(on Full force Galesburg album)

Capo on 1st fret

E               D5  A         A5

E                                                     D5 A                                A5
you turned to me and asked me if i'd always be your boy as we drove across the river into Western Illinois
and on the railroad bridge half a mile of solid steel wheels were spitting out sparks scraping at the rails

B5                          A5
wind in your hair all right sunset spilling through the rear window
E                                                     B5
your white t-shirt hugging your shoulders beaded with sweat
E                                           A5
on the day that i become so forgetful that all of this melts away
E                                   B5                       A5                   E
i will burn all the calendars that counted the years down to such a worthless day

as we walked across the parking lot toward the motel office we were walking with a benediction on us
light was everywhere the building stood against the sky like a monument to desperation two floors high

a mile and a half from the river we went back to the car to get our overnight bags
sunset spilling through your earrings all over your body
when we shut the motel door behind us we knew we'd hit the motherlode
on the day that i forget you i hope my heart explodes
