Mystery - Indigo Girls

Each time you'd pull down the driveway i wasn't sure when i would see you again yours was a twisted blind-sided highway no matter which road you took then oh you set up your place in my thoughts moved in and made my thinking crowded now we're out in the back with the barking dogs my heart the red sun your heart the moon clouded i could go crazy on a night like tonight when summer's beginning to give up her fight and every thought's a possibility and voices are heard but nothing is seen why do you spend this time with me maybe an equal mystery so what is love then is it dictated or chosen does it sing like the hymns of 1000 years or is it just pop emotion and if it ever was here and it left does it mean it was never true and to exist it must elude is that why i think these things of you but i could go crazy on a night like tonight when summer's beginning to give up her fight and every thought's a possibility and voices are heard but nothing is seen why do you spend this time with me maybe an equal mystery oh
but you like the taste of danger it shines like sugar on your lips and you like to stand in the line of fire just to show you can shoot straight from your hip there must be a 1000 things you would die for i can hardly think of two but not everything is better spoken aloud not when i'm talking to you oh the pirate gets the ship and the girl tonight breaks a bottle to christen her basking in the exploits of her thief she's a very good listener and maybe that's all that we need is to meet in the middle of impossibility standing at opposite poles equal partners in a mystery we're standing at opposite poles equal partners in a mystery
