You’re my hey somebody gonna listen to my last prayer
Hey tonight, you’re my hey all right
You’re my hey somebody gonna finally be the only one
Whose ever gonna love me for the rest of my life

You want to feel a little like a little kid
Not always someone looking for what’s always hid
You want to feel fingers tracing your sleeping face
You want to hear a fevered whispering of your secret name

You’re driving fast down country roads for half an hour
To get there after her kids go down
You’re standing on the front porch for close to an hour
To steal a kiss before the lights come on

You want oblivion don’t want to keep on thinking
How every little thing comes undone
You want beginnings not unhappy endings
Unless I’m ending every day with you
