about

On the Road is an electro anti-folk pop song by Team Smile and Nod (words by Katie Miller) about lesbian love, doubt, and traveling.

lyrics

we fly through seasons
falling leaves and silent rains
burn into our existence.

driving past cities
with names i’d like to taste
the soft contours of your body
distract me from
the lazy lines of the road.

but i will wait for darkness.

the bitter october wind rushes over
our summer-stained skin
we shiver out of habit before
a blanket of crescent moon shadows
flicker over us
as we near the black of night.

but i will wait for darkness.

cold coffee breeds your insomnia
you drink methodically
and try to ignore
your kerouac collection shifting restlessly
in the back seat.

but i will wait for darkness.

the urgency of your desire
pulls at my exhaustion
while your hand
hugs the familiarity of my thigh
and releases only long enough to
change the song on the radio
when you can no longer
remember the words.

and i will wait for darkness.

well, all the answers leading back to one
one question, one moment
a thought in time
where do they hide what's always been mine
we’ll go and go and go...
and just drive.
