A breakdown, baby
Now you're running away
You're screaming all these things
That you know you didn't wanna say
But you can't take 'em back
You can't take it back

Sit tight now
But you're grabbin' your phone
And daddy's wallet, too
You need some money?
You can live alone
And all I need is one more night just to...

37 dollars for a Greyhound ticket to New, New York
But where's your heart tonight?

This your getaway
Don't let me stand in the way
I've got so much to say to you tonight
But this is this your getaway
Don't let me stand in the way
I've got so much to say to you tonight
To you tonight

You got the Chucks and your sneakers
The ripped-up jeans
Black and white striped shirt
You wear so you can make a scene
So you can make a scene
If everybody wants to know where you go
Who you know
And how you make this getaway fullblown
Now all I need is one more night with you

37 dollars for a Greyhound ticket to New, New York
But where's your heart tonight?

This your getaway
Don't let me stand in the way
I've got so much to say to you tonight
But this is this your getaway
Don't let me stand in the way
I've got so much to say to you tonight

So I'll try to understand
But I just can't take
The pressure and the pain of being away
And my God, it's just so hard to separate
All the stress from everyday from me and you
From me and you

This is a breakdown, baby
Now you're running away
You're screaming all these things
That you know you didn't wanna say

This your getaway
Don't let me stand in the way
I've got so much to say to you tonight
But this is this your getaway
Don't let me stand in the way
I've got so much to say to you tonight
To you tonight
To you tonight

    General CommentThis band is great pop-rock! Haven't heard this good an EP since Cartels original.

    Here's some fillers for the lyrics:

    Sit tight now,
    but your grabbin' your phone and Daddy's wallet too
    you need some money? you can live alone.

    And how you make this getaway fullblown

    And my God, it's just so hard to separate
    All the stress from everyday from me and you
