  • Frankie was a heart breaker
    I didn't know it at the start
    She was only 16
    But she went and broke my heart

    And she pulled up in her dad's car wearing white
    She said she knew a place where we could hide
    She didn't have a license and she told me I could drive
    So I drove all night

    Why don't you leave me, she asked that night
    I said, I see, I didn't know the kid is mine
    I'll never leave you, it isn't right
    Let's stay together until the end of time

    Oh now the white is red
    Can't get it outta my head
    Oh now the white is red

    I heard that there's a place where we can go
    Across the state there's no one that we know
    Or maybe rent a place where we can stay
    Where what we have will go along the way

    Then Frankie turned to me, she looked me in the eye
    She said that I looked tired, she told me she could drive
    I pulled up to the station, walked through neon lights
    Then she put her foot down, down, down, down

    Why did you leave me alone that night
    You took of racing, the kid is mine
    You left me standing out on the yellow line
    The daylights fading into the night

    We cross the line
    We cross the line
    We cross the line
    We cross the line

    Oh now the white is red
    Can't get it outta my head
    Oh now the white is red

    I don't know why she left, took off racin'
    I ran down yellow line, red lights fadin'
    She went left, double line, outta luck, outta time
    I cover my eyes, I know she crossed the line

    She crossed the line
    She crossed the line
    She crossed the line
    She crossed the line
    She crossed the line
    She crossed the line
    She crossed the line
    She crossed the line

    Oh now the white is red
    Can't get it outta my head
    Oh now the white is red Writer/s: Jesse Keeler, Sebastien Grainger
