bittersweet drive

there’s something so bittersweet about the drives home
she looks so beautiful glowing like the golden sky
i glance over at her hand in mine then her thumb grazes mine and i think i might just die
suddenly the sun is gone and i see her in flashes from the light posts
were going fast enough for its timing to match my racing heart
its a little piece of heaven before we reach our final destination and suddenly i wish we’ll never get there
i pass on a silent i love you every time i place a kiss on her hand
because her lips are too far from mine that it should be a crime
i think her lips belong on mine all the time
and suddenly we’re in front of my place we’ve been parked here for so long
but goodbyes are always so hard when it’s to the one you love
