The nights were all electronic
The earth was a pixilated comet
My voice was all ones and zeroes
Til you showed up

This whole goddamn city is a desert
The air is suffocating
It’s aching with desperation
Yeah, I’m all choked up now
I’m all choked up now

Now that you’re the lyric I could never cross out
Yeah, you’re the book I could never put down
I’m just scared when I wake up in the next town
You’ll forget I was ever there at all

Oh, she gets cleaned up
And I’m stuck in time
Let’s get out of here
Let’s get out of here
Oh, let’s not wait too long
Let’s get out of here
Let’s get the fuck out of here

I said oh, there’d be nothing in our way
Like swimming in the ocean
You could just keep on going
So let’s just keep going

But we just drift through the night
Drinking all we can
Yeah, we drank all we can
Yeah, didn’t we, love?
Yeah, we tried to forget
Soon we’d be just tears in airport terminals
Gasping for breath

And when the dawn crept up
My eyes refused to adjust
To this empty bed
As that silence poured in

I said oh, let’s get out of here
I said oh, let’s get out of here
I said oh, let’s not wait too long
Let’s get out of here
Let’s get the fuck out of here

So kiss me, let’s skip town
