Mia - Emmy the Great

the day that we
took out a car in the rain
is the day you forgot how to
brake and see
how quickly the picture will change
filled with fingers and voices and teeth
i still remember holding my hand
against your face just before it was sprayed
across the radio
as it played

and you and me
are still but the scenery moves
well why would it stop just 'cause
suddenly
there's one where there used to be two
and everything's quiet but yo
looks like the speaker lived through the blow
still playing some compilation you made
feels like a lifetime sitting alone
so i start humming along to the tape

i always liked this singer
i remember how you were the one who told me that her name
was either mia
or m.i.a.

and i am thinking
how many hours till i'm home
how long do i stay in this place
who's going to wash all the blood from my clothes
who's gonna cancel my date
who's gonna cancel my date

and i think
i always liked this singer
i remember how you were the one who told me that her name
was either mia

and i think
i always liked this singer
i remember how you were the one who told me that her name
was either mia
or m.i.a.

and the day that we
took out a car in the wet
i thought to myself that the sky was blue
as i've ever seen it but yet
still tinted with red
