Lyrics Big Thief

Written by: Adrianne Lenker

Holed up in Vegas for only one week
And I caught you tongue and cheek by the side of the road
Of an automobile expo
Turned up the volume and you started to weep
And I thought you a lamb

Even in the sigh of a headlight sea
Your tears were salty ocean
You opened up the engine and listened to it sing
And I called you a lamb

You knew your daddy until you were thirteen
And then he took his leave for the likes of the land
And the far off salty ocean
We shook our bodies and we started to scream
And I asked you again

Tell me when we grow up do we ever go home?
You said home becomes the highway

We ordered movies on a motel screen
Until you needed me warm inside of your mouth
And my skin was salty ocean
And then you recommended I'm a woman to keep
And I called you a man
