The only girl I ever fell in love with
Taught me how to drink as if it needed
To be taught
I'd always give that girl another shot.

We dance away the difficult times
A sheet of noise to wash away our grievance
And I left
In the fading light at the end of the season.

She said I was the guy behind the counter
Who would offer to give to you comfort
When there was none
I said that I'm the sky behind the flag.

Oh, don't need a miracle
Oh, we need to lose control
We only need to lose control.

The drive goes on as our conversation
Turns to something something on the radio
Then to the drone,
The engine is our anniversary song.

And I think as I look over: lucky you
Lucky me and lucky lucky you
We will be together in our strangeness and safety.

Oh, don't need a miracle
Oh, we need to lose control

Owen why must you always be
First to wake and first to fight
First to wound and first to fly?

Oh, don't need a miracle

Owen why must you always be
First to wake and first to fight
First to wound and first to fly?

I better lose control
But can I lose control?

First to wake and first to fight
First to wound and first to fly
