This is probably the closest thing to a thank you i'll ever get.
As I sink back into the cushion
She smiles that smug smirk smile of hers.
She taps on the steering wheel
It's awkward as hell
Then we both look at each other and start laughing.
You have as nice face I say
I just want to know something
I cant shake the image of my Dad kicking captain
Are you okay
I guess it didn't hit me until now
I see the last of the equipment in the closet
I shut the door
When I reach the driveway, I hear the door fly open
I love you were my last words
