A beautiful sad and breezy song, by my fave band Porcupine Tree, Steve Wilson

Heartattack in a Layby
Verse 1
I pull off the road
East of Baldock and Ashford
Feeling for my cell
In the light from the dashboard

Hissing from the road
The smell of rain in the air con
Maybe check the news
Or just put a tape on

Chorus  (not sure what to call it!)

Lighting up a smoke
I've got this feeling inside me
Don't feel too good

Verse 2
If I close my eyes
And fell asleep in this layby
Would it all subside
The fever pushing the day by

Chorus 2
Motor window wind
I could do with some fresh air
Can't breathe too well

(She waits for me. Home waits for me.)

verse 3
I guess I should go now
(She's waiting to make up)
To tell me she's sorry
(And how much she missed me)
I guess I'm just burnt out
(I really should slow down)
I'm perfectly fine but
(I just need to lie down)

We'll grow old together
We'll grow old together
We'll grow old together....
