Our Day Trip
Nina Nastasia

Let's not go to work this morning
Let's not wait to leave the city
We've got just enough money

Let's see how far we can amble
One day can make all the difference
Rinse the red dirt in the water

Can you stay with me and tell them you're sick
I'll pack us a meal for our day trip

We'll be safe out in the sun
We'll split a bottle on a boat
Two souls alone out on a lake
It will be the perfect afternoon
We can lose our clothes and have a swim

Your free hand waving from the gate
The metal shining at your waist
You had so much more ambition
