So we drove through LA
Until eight in the morning
And ended up at my house
Passed out on the couch
Yeah we spent every night in the city
We spent every morning in my bed
And you wish you could forget
Yeah you wish we never met
Now that the metaphors peeled off
Like a lover’s wet clothes
The cold has soaked you to your bones
So now you shake when you’re alone
And I was so damn scared
That you would prove me wrong
And you were so afraid that I was right
You proved me wrong every night

So dance it off, warm your blood
They can look, they can touch
You can be anything they want
You can be anything they want
When the clubs let out
And you are safe
But the stars are wide awake
They saw every move you made
Yeah I know every move you made

We heard gunshots down the street
And you stumbled to your feet
Like you expected me to let you go
The city lights were at war with the sky
The kids were running for their lives
I never thought we’d make it through the night
Yeah but you said you weren’t afraid to die

But you kept waiting for your rearview
To paint your face with reds and blues
Oh you got away with something
Didn’t you, didn’t you

So dance it off, warm your blood
They can look, they can touch
You can be anything they want
You can be anything they want
When the lights go out
And you are safe
But the stars are wide awake
They saw every move you made
Yeah I know every move you made

And I should’ve let you go.
