Driving home singing at the top of my lungs

There's a few pleasures I enjoy in life, and one of those is belting out songs in the car, after having an awesome meal at the Templeton consisting of veggie poutine and a root beer float. Tonight's soundtracks of choice:

Dan Mangan's newest - Nice, Nice, Very Nice
Joel Plaskett Emergency - Truthfully Truthfully

True love is sharper than stones and sticks
Louder than bombs and clocks that tick
I feel as deep as the ocean blue,
when I'm standing here with you
and the world keeps spinning faster
What am I to do
in the face of our disaster
I've been here before
but I don't know what comes after
The night's a lonely place to be
When the lights go out
I want you here with me

When I could not trust myself
I put my trust in someone else
But she led me astray
and then she went away
All my lessons learned
after all my bridges burned
Everything felt wrong
until you came along

It's quicker than sand, thicker than blood
It's like a slight of the hand, a stick in the mud
It's as deep as the ocean blue
What am I supposed to do
now that all your fire's gone
How do you want me to play along
I know it's true, somewhere we went wrong
But tonight's a lonely place to be
When the lights go out
I want some company
