Back of the Van

Album: Ladyhawke (2008)
  • In the dark, in the back of the van cautiously holding your hand
    Making eyes, making everything alright
    Being home, being all alone, feeling sad watching the phone
    Singing out, singing everything's alright

    You set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire
    You set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire

    In the dark, in the back of the van cautiously holding your hand
    Making eyes, making everything alright
    When I'm out, when I'm far away wanting you, wanting to stay
    Singing out, singing everything's alright

    Cause you set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire
    You set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire
    You set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire
    You set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire

    When I wake and I'm far away, I know that you're leaving
    In the dark when I'm all alone, I'm scared that you're leaving
    When I wake and I'm far away, I know that you're leaving
    In the dark when I'm all alone, I'm scared that you're leaving

    Cause you set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire
    You set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire
    You set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire
    You set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire
    You set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire
    You set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire Writer/s: MICHAEL RICHARD BROWN, GRAHAM STUART JOHNSON
