Testo della canzone Red (Soft & Sweet), tratta dall'album I Saw Smoke

Red - Soft & Sweet

She smiled till her cheeks turned red
Oh, what a rarity that became
I laid a kiss on her forehead
And she brushed back her bangs

She was in the front seat, playing DJ
I kept my eyes on the road
Sang whatever she played
Beatles or Coldplay
Even though I couldn't reach those notes

When the night rolled around
We found a two star motel
Gave each other head on the bed

We joked about Cohen
With no way of knowing
That I'd have to write a song like this

It made her smile til her cheeks turned red
Oh, what a rarity that became
I laid a kiss on her forehead
And she brushed back her bangs

She was actually happy
Oh, to feel that way
Again
The last text that she wrote said
"I'll call you when I get home"

I was stuck at a party
Awkward and ugly
So I just kept to myself

She was playing some beer pong
Singing the same song
That's been on the radio for a week

When I suggest that we leave
She started screaming at me
Told me not to ruin the fun

The party got quiet
Til someone got violent
And we left before they called the police

And on the way back home
She rants about the highs and the lows
And everything in between
How she loves and hates me
I said "I guess I agree"

It made her laugh until her cheeks turned red
Oh, what a rarity that became
I laid a kiss on her forehead
And she brushed back her bangs

Most of the time, she was happy
Oh, to feel that way
Again
The last text that I wrote said
"Call me when you get home"

So we sat down on her bed
Quiet as she said
"I think it's time we moved on"

Well, I knew it was coming
So the tears weren't running
When I said "Well, if it's what you want"

She said "You're always so sweet"
"And deserve better than me"

I told her not to put herself down
"This shit kinda happens"

And that got her laughing
So bittersweet, but always sincere

And so I smiled and her eyes turned red
And in my car, my own did the same
She left a kiss on my forehead
And I left in the rain

When I see her, she's happy
Oh, to feel that way
Again
The last text on my phone says
"Stay safe, drive slow"
