Magnolia Street

from A Crash Course in Roses

words and music by Catie Curtis 1998

I knew that I loved you the first time you got into my car
Your cheeks were flushed and I felt a hush come over me in the dark
I got us lost but at the next cross you said I dont care where we are
Im in the right car

I drove us slow down a fast food strip and you turned the radio on
I was confused, all the signs were lit and you said I love this song
I wanted to say that I loved you but I knew too soon too strong
This is the ride Im on
This is the ride Im on

And I recall in my sleep how you changed my life on Magnolia Street
A dream, but its true I am not the same since I met you
And I feel like Im going home
But not to the one Ive known

I knew that I loved you when we were flying home in the dark
Your hand on the wheel while I was trying to take my jacket off
My foot on the gas your eyes fast to the road ahead of us
I never felt such trust

And I recall in my sleep how you changed my life on Magnolia Street
A dream, but its true I am not the same since I met you

I knew that I loved you the first time you got into my car
Your cheeks were flushed and I felt a hush come over me in the dark
You wake me up warm from sleep and you take me in your arms
This is the ride Im on
This is the ride I want

And I recall in my sleep how you changed my life on Magnolia Street
A dream, but its true I am not the same since I met you
And I feel like Im going home
But not to the one Ive known
