We can leap buildings and rivers, but really we just want to fly

Tried to tell you
3 times, but you wouldn’t believe me
And now we’re, stuck here in this mess again

Tried to tell you
It wouldn’t work, but you just weren’t listening
And now we have no escape route again

But kiss me tonight I will love you forever
I don’t want to think, I just want to give in
To your eyes and your mouth and your teeth and your skin
And your half-naked frame and the heartbeat within

We’ll leave the private schools behind
We’ll leave the uniforms behind
We’ll leave the underworld to those who know much more than we do
To those who know much more than we do.

Tried to tell you
It wouldn’t work, but you just weren’t listening
And now we have no escape route again

Tried to tell you
3 times, but you wouldn’t believe me
And now we’re, locked in a basement again

But kiss me tonight I will love you forever
I might never get a chance like this again
It’s a pale summer’s night and your lips should be on mine
Your heart should be beating the same beat as mine

Kiss me tonight I will love you forever
I don’t want to think, I just want to give in
To your eyes and your mouth and your teeth and your skin
And your half-naked frame and the heartbeat within

We’ll leave the private schools behind
We’ll leave the uniforms behind
We’ll leave the underworld to those who know much more than we do
To those who know much more than we do.

(We can leap buildings and rivers, but really we just wanna fly)
