lyrics

she was a shark smile in a yellow van
she came around and i stole her glance in my youth, a vampire
evelyn shown quiet as roses sting

it came over me at a bad time, but who wouldn’t ride on a moonlight line?
i had her in my eye, 85 down the road of a dead end gleam

she said woo
baby take me
i said woo 
baby take me too

it came over her at a bad time, riding through Winona down the dotted line
she held us, gunning out 90 miles down the road of a dead end dream
she looked over with her part smile, caught up in the twinkle it could take awhile
and the money pile on the dashboard, fluttering

as she said woo
baby take me
i said woo
baby take me too

evelyn’s kiss was oxygen, 
i leaned over to take it in as we went howling through the edge of south des moines 
it came over me at a bad time, she burned over the double line and she impaled as i reached my hand for the guard rail, the guard rail, the guard rail 

she said woo
baby, take me
i said woo
baby take me too
