        your momma's failed wheat field 
        it's a good place to lie down together
three weeks deep into the guts of summer 
Em7     Cadd9                            G
we sweat like hogs and i felt light as a feather

i saw a disk-like object
reflected in your eye
and the noise grew louder 
as we looked up to the sky
 
C                     D                        G
and the sleek silver body headlights along the side
and the sleek silver body headlights all underneath
C                    D       G                  Em
i remember the warm air         blowing in our faces
C               D                   Em7    Cadd9
i remember the heat running through me
 
there was no one worth telling
there was nothing we could do
and i was real quiet as i took the keys from the kitchen table
i was looking right at you
 
and your hand brushed against mine 
yeah and it shook me inside
all along the night sky 
i watched our futures collide
 
and the car's new headlights cut through the darkness
as the oil dripped silently to the pavement underneath
i can remember the warm air burning our faces
i remember the heat running through me
