mime to be a smile_     |   home
roll up and shine_   |   the bartender and the thief_   |   hurry up and wait_   |   pick a part that's new_   |   just looking_   |   half the lies you tell ain't true_   |   i wouldn't believe your radio_   |   t-shirt suntan_   |   is yesterday, tomorrow, today?_   |   a minute longer_   |   she takes her clothes off_   |   plastic california_   |   i stopped to fill my car up_
i stopped to fill my car up_
i stopped to fill my car up
the car felt good that day
i didn't know where i was going
but it felt good for a change
a five and a pocket full of silver
i paid the lady, no change
and then it started to piss down
i started drivin' again

and then i looked up, and looked in the mirror behind me
and then i looked up, and looked in the mirror behind me

a man round forty in the back seat
must have stepped in when i was empty
so why's he sat there just waiting
likely to smash my face in
he had a bag full of money
he said just drive me away
i didn't know where i was going
yet it felt good to be strange

and still i look up, and look in the mirror behind me
and still i look up, and look in the mirror behind me

curiosity's over
stepped down from the car
he pulled a gun from his jacket
said i was going to die
it gives me so much satisfaction
to watch you beg and cry
well i just made up this story
to get your attention makes me smile

i never looked up, or looked in the mirror behind me
i never looked up, or looked in the mirror behind me
