Anderson East – Hood of My Car Lyrics

I remember how the dust set on your skin in that parking lot
Your hair was all caught up in that necklace your sister lost
The heat coming off the engine may as well have been the sun
And I felt the pull of what it was to finally have someone

And I wanna take you out there to whatever’s past the stars
We can be whatever we want and who we are
Out here in the dark
I wanna take you, right here, on the hood of my car
On the hood of my car

It only felt right for a minute and I was scared to death that we’d miss it
‘Cause the first time around is the only time around you can get it
But those yellow lights were flashing, we knew the clock was running out
And you pulled away, said your wish, bit your lip, and my God

I wanna take you out there to whatever’s past the stars
We can be whatever we want and who we are
Out here in the dark
I wanna take you, right here, on the hood of my car
On the hood of my car

[Vocalizing]

And I wanna take you out there to whatever’s past the stars
We can be whatever we want and who we are
Out there in the dark
I wanna take you, right here, on the hood of my car
On the hood of my car

[Outro Vocalizing]
