Maximo park - Tanned

The younger one
Darkly tanned
Chewing gum
Mint on her mischievous tongue
Mingling with a taste of tin
On her gums

Each layer removed
Revealed a paler shade of skin
Each subtle shade
Felt like a secret shared

She was my reward
And I was hers.
The summer glazed our skin
But it scorched everything.

Ooohh

Tentative
Her body's outline
Spanish eyes
Captured by amber light
To nullify the alcohol
She kept her jeans on in bed

Her mother let me stay
After the disco made us deaf
'Cause we missed the final Metro
To the flat that she once let


She was my reward
And I was hers
The summer glazed our skin
And it torched everything.

Ooohh

Each layer removed
Revealed a paler shade of skin
Each subtle shade
Felt like a secret shared

She was my reward
And I was hers
The summer glazed our skin
But it scorched everything.

Ooohh
