Tanned - Maximo Park

Younger one
Darkly tanned, chewing gum
Mint on her mischievous tongue
Mingling with a taste of tin on her gums
Each layer removed revealed
A paler shade of skin
Each subtle shade fell
Like a secret shed

She was my reward
And I was hers
The summer glazed our skin
But it scorched everything.

Ooohh

Tentative
Her body's out like Spanish eyes
Captured by all who like to nullify
The alcohol, she kept her jeans on in bed
Her mother let me stay
After the disco made us deaf
Cause we missed the final metro
To the flat that she once let

She was my reward
And I was hers
The summer glazed our skin
And it torched everything.

Ooohh

Each layer removed revealed
A paler shade of skin
And each subtle shade fell
Like a secret shed

She was my reward
And I was hers
The summer glazed our skin
But it scorched everything.

Ooohh
