Now that we've perfected the art of love
Now all the lights shine on me and misery
My good friend misery

You can be cured by a single touch
You can get up and walk away
Anything that you say

The drive of the road again
'Cause I'll be your only friend
Right before we touch the ground
The night asleep, loving sound
Sweet loving sound
