I'm stuck
I'm out of luck
And trying to talk my way out of this
Even fog lifts, but not this
No not this

There's no way you're coming back
There's no way you're coming back
Babe, I know you never leave without
Your gun ...
But if you let it be and just sit down
And lay your head on me

We could leave
I'll dim the stars
We'll steal away from here
We'll run so fast and so far
We'll burn up these streets
Our mystery complete
The moon will die of shame

There's no way you're coming back
There's no way you're coming back
Babe, I know you never leave without
Your gun ...
But if you let it be and just sit down
And lay your head on me

There's no way you're coming back
There's no way you're coming back
Babe, I know you never leave without
Your gun ...
But if you let it be and just sit down
And lay your head on me ...

And just stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me

    General CommentI think this song is about about someone who is very headstrong going into a situation that they have no control over. A situation that could end on a bad note.

    General CommentFirst off, this song is completely amazing.

    This song is about someone in a relationship (friend, girlfriend/boyfriend) that's being directly affected by some complicated/tough situation. It's being sung from the perspective of the friend. The person who'se suffering doesn't want to drag the other into this and cause them more pain, they want to go into it alone as not to hurt this person they care about.

    I'm stuck, I'm out of luck (the person can't find a way to help)
    I'm trying to talk my way out of this (the friend is attempting to stop the relationship for fear of dragging the singer into it, but the friend wants to be there)
    Even fog lifts, but no not this (the situation in question isn't something that can end easily and is only going to continue to taint the relationship)
    There's no way you're coming back (the person is being stubborn, trying to protect the singer)
    Babe I know you'll never leave without your gun (the person is always on guard, sleeping with one eye open)
    But if you'll let it be and just sit down and lay your head on me and just stay with me (the singer doesn't care about the situation, and only wants to be there with them through it)
    We could leave
    I'll dim the stars
    We'll steal away from here
    We'll run so fast and so far
    We'll burn up these streets
    Our mystery complete
    (trying be there for the person, an attempt to show they won't leave no matter how complicated things get)
    The moon will die of shame
    (there's no reason to be in this alone)
