lyrics

Driveway blues introduce us,
All that noise and sound attracts,
I'm deafened by the darkened stacks,
I can feel the strangers pass,
Manic and sad.

In this place,
I see faces,
Disappear into it,
An atmosphere that makes me sick,
Oh I wish I did not fit,
But I fit right in.

All I need now is love in its purest form,
But who would allow, if they knew who I was?

Cheap perfume,
Make-up glue face,
All the girls try so hard,
To win a man without a heart,
How they push and pull apart,
Night after night.

There you are,
Just as awkward,
As I am in this scene,
But don’t expect any honesty,
I would never let that be,
Let you see me.

All I need now is love in its purest form,
But who would allow, if they knew who I was?

It's nights like these leave with such enemy scenes I regret,
The way I behave will keep killing my will to forgive myself,
The truth in my soul is a truth I withhold, but I think that she knows,
I think that she knows that I’m no good,
My act couldn’t fool this one half awake.
I think that she knows I’m no good,
But I hope that she loves me anyway,
But I won’t be surprised if she runs away.

All I need now is love in its purest form,
Who would allow if they knew who I was?
