BMW BABY
in which a bitter Brisport drives off in his boss’ luxury sedan.
Featuring Ato Blankson-Wood and the Company.

lyrics

Lyrics:

MEN:
Go, go, go, go, go…

BRISPORT:
Reverse out the driveway
Boss’s BMW baby!
Ride me,
Roll me,
So fast we disappear…
Rearview mirror holds
All who’ll never know this feeling…
Bleed me,
Burn me,
Take me far from here.

No tomorrow, no transgression,
Sweeter than this new obsession.
Loving how wind is stinging,
Like the sound of sirens singing.

Oh…
Feel my heart, it’s hotter than the sun
Oh…
Can you taste the ocean on my tongue?

Now fly down the highway,
Boss’s BMW baby!
Hold me,
Enfold me,
Keep our secret tight…
Save the day so easy
Just like Flynn who came before me.
Break me,
Remake me,
Before we say goodnight.

No design, no destination,
Engine purring liberation.
Speeding from a life that’s duller,
Shifting gears to technicolor.

Oh…
Feel my heart it’s hotter than the sun
Oh…
Can you taste the ocean on my tongue?
