You've got the stars and I've got the skyline,
in a pattern of windows calling it a night.
I wonder how many dark rooms are filled up with lovers
who've made much better decisions than I.
Lately I've been sleeping alone and turning off my phone
like tommorow's a new day.
I believe that if Baltimore's got so much charm,
maybe I'll dream of something clever to say.

I can't forget the way that your hair fell gracefully in your face
In mid-July your eyes are begging me to taste your lips on mine
and I'm a sucker for a good time
But you're not falling for my best lines
I can't replace you in my life

You've got a smile on, I've got the countdown
The top five reasons for setting the record straight
I wonder how many late nights you've spent between bedsheets
while I obsess over love we made
I've been driving alone and looking out at the world in a sea of headlights
Still, when I look in the rearview,
I just want to be near you
I just want your feet on my windshield tonight

The bar scene is based on believing you can fall in love within an hour of meeting,
and fall out with a headache in the morning.
And I feel that chase has lost the thrill,
but the looks you're giving me could kill
so I take that as a hint to keep my mouth shut.
So strike up the band and get on the floor to dance around the fact that I feel like I don't know you anymore.
