I want to live and die in a small apartment
On the fifteenth floor of a New York skyrise
But when I talk to you at the office party
You said you couldn't move 'cause your boss needs you around

I want to spend the night in a cheap motel room
We can live in sin if you really want to
'Cause I've been thinking hard about doing something
About the way I felt the past two years or so

If you wanna walk away, just do so softly
I ain't in the mood to talk, so get up off me
No one ever leaves their home to go somewhere they detest

Come on come on come on...

    General CommentIt sounds like he is saying threesome but I don't know. I will have to listen to it a few more times to make sure that is what he is saying.

    General CommentI think this is about being stuck in a certain place in life for quite some time (the past two years or so) and the desire to feel alive, and do something you'll regret just to say you lived, just to abandon that place you're stuck in.
