Track Name: Love's No Place
I learned how to talk to strangers
A child of the seventies
An April girl named Winter
Queen City, knobby knees
I met her in a back seat
Blood brother's bat wing car
If we were big enough
He'd land us in a bar
We were fifteen
And so obscene

Love's no place for falling
It knocks you down some times
Love's no place for falling
I know I tried

Shoplifted Fairmount Liquors
Our sweetness got us drunk
She dipped her gum in bourbon
And put it on my tongue

That and one look
Was all it took
