Sell all your things and come run away with me
Let's do our best to try and forget there's nothing left to live for
Come with, we'll hit the road 'fore the nightfall
And don't even say goodbye to your friends
They'll never understand it
They don't know

It's all in your head, girl
Let's get out of here now
You know that there's no shame in running
From the things that you can't face
In your head, girl
Let's get out of here now
You know that things just won't come right if we just wait

You say you're tired of everyone you know
And I can't complain, and it's getting harder to get up each morning
There's nothing left for us in the city now
And I know you dream about it, so let's not stop and think about it
Hey

It's all in your head, girl
Let's get out of here now
You know that there's no shame in running
From the things that you can't face
In your head, girl
Let's get out of here now
You know that things just won't come right if we just wait

(spoken:)
We've been stuck in this town for too long
And we're starting to choke, it's clear
That from all these tired eyes and jealous tongues
We can turn our backs and just run
So steer away with me in the night
Steer away with me while your family sleeps
And we can disappear together
If only you would

It's all in your head, girl
Let's get out of here now
You know that there's no shame in running
From the things that you can't face
In your head, girl
Let's get out of here now
You know that things just won't come right if we just wait
