I said, "I get paid by the hour."
She hit me with one of those 12-second growls
And somewhere about halfway through it
I started missing you.

There's a bear inside her won't stop talking
Won't stop shaking, won't stop rocking
And only now
Am I even able to listen to you

Well, the map it looks like varicose veins
The smudges on a windowpane
I can't tell if it's dirt
Or my direction

So I pick a road and then fall off it
Pick this girl this broken rocket
Caught up in my
Private insurrection

On holiday road.

Speak in Spanish, baby, speak in Italian
Whatever you do just call me your stallion
I want to be
The animal inside you

Call me back: I miss the stable
I want to see my kitchen table
I want to see the elements
Collide for you

On holiday road.

Halfway through that 12-second growl
Building up into a howl
I'm waiting through her
Everlasting shiver

So I'll trace the arteries inside me
Back to where they gather tightly
Back to where the pumping muscle

On holiday road.

I miss my last mistake
I miss my great relief
I miss falling awake
I miss my little thief.
