​Red in the Morning

This song is by The Gaslight Anthem and appears on the album Sink or Swim (2007).

Let it ride, let it ride, let it roll off your mind
And don't say a single word, get back inside
Let me drive, let me drive, disappear in the night
Like I was a ghost

Let it ride, let it ride, let it roll off your mind
And don't say a single word, get back inside
Let me drive, let me drive, disappear in the night
Like I was a ghost in a dream

And it was all completely wrong, Virginia
You were much too much for me
I was a boy on the lawn with his eyes to the sky
You were Garbo, smoke, and deceit

But it was Saturday, September, and fire
It was a backdrop set in your smile
And it was all I could want in the sway of a song
I was haunted for so many years

Let it ride, let it ride, let it roll off your mind
And don't say a single word, get back inside
Let me drive, let me drive, disappear in your mind
Like I was a ghost in a dream

Say goodbye, say goodbye, give a kiss and a sigh
Never, never, never bring me back to your mind
Let it slide, slide, roll off your mind
Like I was a movie you'd seen

Oh, it was all just a crime, Virginia
Let your fire be mercy to me
I was a boy in your arms, safe in your arms
And you swore like a promise to me

That I would never, never, never leave your heart
No, I would never, never, never leave your heart
But where are you now? I can still feel you now
And I hear all your songs in the breeze

Let it ride, let it ride, let it roll off your mind
Don't say a single word, get back inside
Let me drive, let me drive, disappear in the night
Like I was a ghost in your dreams

Say goodbye, say goodbye, give a kiss and a sigh
Never, never, never bring me back to your mind
Let me slide, slide, roll off your mind
Like I was a movie you'd seen

Let it ride
Ride!

Let it ride, let it ride, let it roll off your mind
Don't say a single word, get back inside
Let me drive, let me drive, disappear in the night
Like I was a ghost in a dream

Oh, say goodbye, say goodbye, give a kiss and a sigh
Never, never, never bring me back to your mind
Let me slide, girl, slide, roll off your mind
Like I was a movie you'd seen

Say goodbye, say goodbye, give a kiss and a sigh
Never, never bring me back to your mind
Let me slide, roll off your mind
Like I was a movie you'd seen

Ha!
