It takes a lot to phase me
I'm pretty stable, I'm pretty sane.
But I'm looking at my future,
and God do I have to lose her?
We shared conversations on how we're all just floating
Through space and nothing matters.
I'm looking for a pattern.

Is it possible to say,
Baby lets run away to the East Coast?
Or Seattle? Corpus? Or Saint Marcus?
I've got a credit card, and a reliable car.
Let's drive...to Pennsylvania.

Madi dear, can't we just disappear
And take our chances on a teenagers romances?
Put our money where our mouth is?

It takes a lot to make me
Pretty angry and very sad.
I'm looking towards the outcome,
there must be some hidden reason.
We shared kisses upside down and on your old quilt,
By your computer I was hoping, your garage as it opened.

Is there any way you could change schools
And stay up here in Fort Worth?
Cause you're what I look for.
I got a hopeless crush,
maybe that don't mean much to you,
But I'm hoping this could keep going.

It's six a.m. and ice cream is the first thing on my list.
(And PEZ?) improves our kisses, after so many misses.

    General CommentI think it's PETS instead of PEZ.
    Pets is an icecream brand.
    And he was reffering to icecream.

    General CommentI think that this song has alot of meaning behind it. In the beginning he states that he's "pretty stable and pretty sane" but then he goes on to talk about running away. I think that this song is about a person that he met and she made him a totally different person than he was to begin with. He went from being very levelheaded to just falling for her and willing to do anything to keep her in his life.

    General CommentHim and Madi have been together since forever it seems.
    This song was written for a real girl named madi i believe. I wish someone would write a song for me like this. God, i love it.

    General Commentfirst i wanna say this song is for me very ironic because its about his older girl friend going to college whos name is Madi. its ironic for me because i live in Texas where he is from and i have a friend in New York (East Coast) who i have a bit of a crush on tough the age is reverse im older then she is.

    second is that its San Marcos not Saint Marcus

    part of the reason why i love to listen to playradioplay is because they have so many references to Texas. in this song Corpus, a gulf town, by Port Aransas, Fort Worth, and San Marcos which is like 30 minutes from where i live which is Austin so artistunknown was right on that
