lyrics

She’ll bite her lip
He’ll take his eyes from the road
They’ll count in silence
To the end of a row of houses
A sharp turn, then a hill
Some dollars worth of petrol

At the horizon waits a prize for them both
Oh how their chins will rise and stretch out from their throats
It’s a potion, it’s a cure
For their young emotions
For the immature

A quiet click, they miss as they pass
Reversible, to all unfolding just beyond their grasp

He throws the car into corners
Far from town in the foothills of the mountain
Where crimes make little sense
Beyond the final neighbour’s fence

He’ll quench her thirst for affection
He’ll be her first though a distant expression
Hides a pinch of shame
It’s not enough to pull the reins

Home alone, Veronica knows not where he goes
But it’s the eighties, she’s no mobile phone

In isolation feelings decay, but they all know within a pride of lions
There’s no escaping the unspeakable shame

And there it is on his face
They tried to hide it away
A boy with his father’s name
She did the honourable thing
And took the bastard kid in

There it is on his face
Twenty years and it doesn’t change
They never know if it’s obvious
She said she wanted to go
But there it is on his face
