Lately I've been making plans to make my way out
Fingernails growing short, there ain't no doubt
Everybody wants another part of my wings
I gotta keep you out, shut you out, I plug'em in
I got my headphones
Me and my headphones

The radio is killing me and TV's a bore
All I want today is something I can ignore (let's go)
I got my headphones
Me and my headphones
I gotta let go
I need my...

Come and hear me, gotta listen
Turn it up for my final transmission
Come and hear me, gotta listen
Watch me go, I'm a man on a mission
Do you read me? Are you out there?
Gonna run and make my way outta here
Come and hear me, gotta listen
Gotta listen, are you listening?

So this just in: my broadcast ends
But this ain't good-bye, this is good luck, my friends
I got my headphones
Me and my headphones

I get my batteries, get my tapes, get my player
I get up, I get going and I'm getting better
I need my headphones,
Me and my headphones

I get my batteries, get my tapes, get my player
I get up, I get going and I'm getting better

Come and hear me, gotta listen
Turn it up for my final transmission
Come and hear me, gotta listen
Watch me go, I'm a man on a mission
Do you read me? Are you out there?
Gonna run and make my way outta here
Come and hear me, gotta listen
Gotta listen, are you listening to me?

(She kissed me in New York City
She held my hand in Tokyo
She walked me down to Leicester Square
And she found me passed out in Soho
She showed me round in Dublin
She even followed me to Rome
She kept me warm in Warsaw
And she always guided me back home
She's as good as it gets
She's as good as it gets)

Can you hear me, are you listening?
Turn it up for my final transmission
Can you hear me, are you listening?
Watch me go, I'm a man on your mission
Do you read me? Are you out there?
Gonna run and make my way outta here
Can you hear me, are you listening?
are you listening, are you listening?

(Ohohoo, Ohohoo)
