LyricsEdit

Moon's full, and the sky is bright
And so you and me are gonna get drunk tonight
We're gonna steal some tractors and head on into town
Find the main strip and start mowing them down

Don't come to the window 'til you're sure it's me
Don't ignore the obvious, take a deep breath
Put your hand on the goddamn radio
Put your hand on the goddamn radio

Fields are full of spirits, but no one cares at all
A light above you flickers when you hear me call
And I'm shaking when I see you there cause I don't know what it means
But the ground is looking dry tonight and bursting near the seams

So don't come to the window 'til you're sure it's me
Don't ignore the obvious, take a deep breath
Put your hand on the goddamn radio
Put your hand on the goddamn radio, yeah

Comments by John Darnielle About this SongEdit

  • "You lie there looking at the ceiling and you say to yourself, 'I'm never going to get my youth back. It's gone. Didn't see it going and it didn't leave a note.' But then one evening, you feel like you have a little fever, certain you're getting sick, but it just rests in that one little space of some metallic feeling in the back of your throat. You get a little mad at the person who made you sick for a second. But then it's not a fever exactly, it's a kind of itch, call somebody that needs to know, they've changed their number. This song is about the other person who answers." -- 2012-10-13 - Music Hall of Williamsburg - Brooklyn, NY
