lyrics

Let out an audible sigh
in the middle of my drive
there was a dead cat on the side of the highway

I’d been wanting less sound
craving something more profound
I saw your name appear before I felt the phone vibrate

and oh, oh, oh
that’s how it tends to go these days
and oh, oh, oh
oh, oh

In the middle of June
the mosquitoes came too soon
we were drinking beers on the porch by your driveway

all the things that lie beneath
deserve the time and space to breathe
you smelled me there before you knew just where I’d been hiding

and oh, oh, oh
that’s how it tends to go these days
and oh, oh, oh
oh, oh
that’s how it tends to go

I get so emotional, baby
everytime I think of you
I get so emotional, baby
ain’t it shocking what love can do

I get so emotional, baby
everytime I think of you
I get so emotional, baby
ain’t it shocking what love can do
shocking what love can do

and oh, oh, oh
that’s how it tends to go these days
and oh, oh, oh
oh, oh
that’s how it tends to go

and oh, oh, oh
that’s how it tends to go these days
and oh, oh, oh
oh, oh

let out an audible sigh
in the middle of my drive
there was a dead cat on the side of the highway
