…Light after light, lights after lights, night after night, nights after nights,
Driving in the streets, in the dark, into the darkness of the night,
it was good, too good to be true,
love, love at first sight. But you lost sight.
How did you get there?
Driving fast, driving to a new destiny, no brakes, no turning back.
Keep it together son… Or you won’t make it.
Playing big boys. But those guys aren’t playing. Or they’ll kill you easy. It will be easy for them, just a game.
So keep it together son, think straight.
Take this hammer and finish them for good.
…Sweat. Sweating. Sweat before action.
Cold. Cold feet. Don’t freeze son, keep it together.
You’ve got that hammer. You’ve got balls.
Bad idea. Poor choices. Too late to go back.
…Now that is done, you’re on the run.
Run, run, run little boy, you’re just a kid, not like these guys.
How did we end up here?
For a girl, for sure, just a kiss, one kiss. That’s all you ever wanted, that’s all you got and will get.
Now you’re bleeding, blood coming from your stomach.
He didn’t see you coming. You didn’t see that knife.
No good, no way to run, no exit.
You’re finished, you’re done.
But you know that the girl and the little boy are safe.
Driving in the dark, into the darkness of the night, light after light, lights after lights, night after night, nights after nights.
Worth it. It was. Worth the kiss.
One way only. End of the road. End of the story.
