Don't you ever want to run away?
Of course I do, of course I do.
Don't you ever want to try to stay?
I hope you do, I hope you do.

I'd buy you a ticket anywhere
if I could go, if I could go.
Leave you when our plane touched down.
I guess you know, goodbye, nice knowing you.

My words can't fix this.
You don't love me.
Say you love me.
Where is your Phoenix?
Scan the ashes.
What surpasses this?

Is it brave to brave the wilderness?
I close my eyes. I smell that pine.
Or to shake the hand of common sense?
I've so much time. Do I have time?

What's so wrong with being lost?
Nothing, I guess. Nothing, I guess.
Once you said you built the Pyramids,
so stop and rest. Stay here and rest with me.

Babe, there's one hitch only:
Do I love you? Yes, I love you,
but you and I both know me.
If you don't love me
I don't want you to.

Dreaming of you today
I thought you touched me
Felt you touch me.
But when I jerked awake
you were further
than you've ever been.
Run fast, run true, my friend.
