Can I tell you one thing?
It’s a secret so hold on tight;
I need your help to close my eyes,
to fall asleep at night.
Can I say one more thing?
Another secret, hold on tight;
a one track heart, a one track mind,
I've been told they're not right.

I've become too dependant on every word you sing.
I need your help to close my eyes, it’s my everything.
I've become too dependant on every word you sing,
but I don’t care it’s our sound, our everything.

Now did you catch that look in his eye?
It should have made you think this,
that he can take us to the sky.
All I hear is if I would have went the same road too
maybe I'd have stories to tell you.
I'll find mine, that’s the difference of me and you.

Now pump our lungs with the sweetest air.
Fill our hearts full gold, with no room to spare.
Drain our veins fill them with gasoline;
I swear we'll get there.
Please no doubt, no hesitation;
just give me the time you can spare.

I've become too dependant on every word you sing.
I need your help to close my eyes, it's my everything.
I've become too dependant on every word you sing,
but I don’t care it’s our sound, our everything.

Now did you catch that look in his eye?
It should have made you think this,
that he can take us to the sky.
All I hear is if I would have went the same road too
Maybe I'd have stories to tell you.
I'll find mine, that’s the difference of me and you.

Like you, I'll count how things could go wrong
and I still won't care, we'll just keep driving on.
From the sunset to the sunrise, I'll take all I can see.
Give me distance, friends, and late nights, I'll take everything.
From the sunset to the sunrise, I'll take all I can see.
Give me distance, friends, and late nights, I'll take everything.

I'll take a chance, I'll throw out everything.
All the weight in the world, it still won't get me
Off this chance of a distraction from everything.

Now did you catch that look in his eye?
It should have made you think this;
that he can take us to the sky.
To a place with the sweetest air
where they fill our hearts with gold. There's so many roads, go to sleep for a while,
I'll wake you up in three-thousand miles.
Now did you catch that look in my eye?
It should have made you think this;
that I can take us to the sky.
To a place with the sweetest air
where they fill our hearts with gold. There's so many roads, go to sleep for a while,
I'll wake you up in three-thousand miles.
