"The Great Escape" as written by and Caroline/transeau Lavelle....
You talk to me
With the language of the sea
Of sand hot in the sun

With the cries of night creatures
I dimly understand
In your great escape
In your great escape
It's your chance to take
Make your great escape

Your binary words
Glow in my darkness
Your darling hangs in the air
And in me chemicals run
In my blood just by looking
You take my free will and throw it away

And I feel your warmth
As the sparks fly upwards
From the burning of all of your bridges

In your great escape
In your great escape
It's your chance to take
Make your great escape

    General Commenti thinks this song is more about watching someone ELSE go away. the singer is so in love with the person leaving and maybe knows it's best for their lover that they're still happy for them, yet still totally in love with them at the same time. "i feel your warmth as the sparks fly upwards, from the burning of all of your bridges" the first half of the stanza is very happy but the second half is like "fuck you for leaving"
