[Verse 1]
Summer was lush
The winter is bony and rough here
Put cream in your cup
Then blow steam off the cup
We walk down Francis
Hit the 7-Eleven near campus
Holding hands like some kids
Then we wait till sunset
Hit the liquor store on Selma
The neighbor's dog barks from the trailer

[Chorus]
Oh, Violet
Would you wait around with me?
I'm begging you, Violet
Would you stay around for me?
I'm begging you, Violet
The sunset looked violent
Your hair and your thighs are wet
Kiss you on the neck, Violet, Violet

[Verse 2]
You got my shirts in your car
I put a punching bag in the yard
Laundry room flood from the rain
The whistling train, I kiss you again and again
You take photographs from the backseat
Down the back roads in Patapsco
We driving slow, windows are low
Tires are slick from the snow

[Chorus]
And I think of you, Violet
Would you wait around with me?
I'm begging you, Violet
Would you stay around for me?
I'm begging you, Violet
The sunset looked violent
Your hair and your thighs are wet
Kiss you on the neck, Violet
I'm begging you, Violet
Would you wait around with me?
I'm begging you, Violet
Would you stay around for me?
I'm begging you, Violet
The sunset looked violent
Your hair and your thighs are wet
Kiss you on the neck, Violet, Violet

[Bridge]
Ooh, ooh
Begging you, Violet
Begging you, begging you, begging you
Violet
Begging you, begging you, begging you
Violet, Violet

[Outro]
We get older, we both grow
It's hot, it's cold
I want you so
I spent all day on the road
I call you up, "I'm heading home"
We hit the pub
I drink too much
You drive me home
Can't wait to get home
We laugh, we fight, we yell, we take it off
This town's slow, I like it slow with you
