lyrics

signed my name across your hip a tatoo'd rose right next to it
the moonlite fell unto your face as you laugh and radiate
because the nite will bury you before the day to wash away the crooked smile that you had i bit your lip because you're sad
someone's whisper, indelicate asides across this boys loss cupid came unto my heart loose his bow i fall apart
took a ride into your car
tatoo'd you a big star
up to the lake where moonlite fell unto your face to radiate
because the nite will bury you before the day to wash away the crooked smile that you had i bit your lip because you're sad
