Juan in the Rearview Mirror

from Big Noise

I know he saw us in his rearview mirror
I know he saw us in his rearview mirror
I know he saw us in his rearview mirror
but he aint coming back here

cars go by, their blinkers flash,
some come too close and they make a splash
but we'll be home soon, if we cross this street
the vent by our kitchen will warm our feet
and we'll be alright
the whites speed by, at alarming rates
where all my amigos congregate
and my daddy waits, for his ride to work
a flatbed of dark men in flannel shirts
return at night

call me Juan- I keep my sister dry
they say jump, and me, I don't ask why
quiet, Isa- I'll keep you dry
I won't break this carriage at three feet high

The days drift by, like a distant boat,
safe out of range from us throwing stones
and we'll be out soon, less we make the rent
there's no trace where the money's spent
but we'll be alright
one day I'll buy a grown-up car
if I reach the pedals I'll take us far
so take away, any rearview mirror
get me and my sister the hell out of here

Chorus

I know he saw us in his rearview mirror-
I'll keep you dry
I know he saw us in his rearview mirror-
I'll keep you dry
I know he saw us in his rearview mirror-
I'll keep you dry
I know he saw us
