"Owl Eyes" as written by and Devendra Banhart....
I'm hoping hat you feel the same as I do
Walking through the ruins of this crazy town
Like we've got plans
But you don't have
And right there's a place waiting just for us to run to
Just for us to run to

If all is the same
Wherever we go
Then I suppose that we should change our names
Settle into something basic
We'll make the world a better place to run to
A place for us to run to
You can stay here for a while
And remember all the empty streets back home
With a little more time
We can picture all the faces that we've known Along the way
Whoa-oh

I'm hoping that you feel the same as I do
Walking through the ruins of this crazy town
Like we've got plans but you don't have
And right there's a place waiting just for us to run to
Just for us to run to
You can stay here for a while
And remember all the empty streets back home
And with a little more time
We can picture all the faces that we've known along the way

    General CommentI think it's:

    Like we've got plans
    That you don't have
    And like there's a place waiting just for us to run to

    and

    "Settle into something," they say

    Sorry, I know that was annoying.

    General CommentNo worries! There are a couple other Headlights songs that I wasn't 100% sure of when I posted them, so I'm open to be corrected, and you were really cool about it.

    General CommentAlso, isn't it "will make the world a better place to run to." You settle into a nice place or life that's good to run to. That's what I heard. Could just be hearing what I want to hear.
