Mitski – Valentine, Texas Full Lyrics
Let’s step carefully into the dark Once we’re in, I’ll remember my way around Who will I be tonight Who will I become tonight I’ll show you who my sweetheart’s never met Wet teeth, shining eyes Glimmering by a fire
Let’s drive out to where dust devils are made By dancing ghosts as they kick up clouds of sand Where clouds look like mountains Clouds look like mountains Let me watch those mountains from underneath And maybe they’ll finally float off of me
