Boy:
It was late out, but you were awake
You asked for a cigarette, then asked me to stay
The scent that you’re waftin’ dirty thoughts to my brain
And your smile drove me insane

It was then that we got lost in a dream
That when we walk there was some distance between
All cuz, you keep runnin’
You keep runnin’ away

Girl:
It was rainin’ when you told me to leave
You were complainin’ I was out of your league
The night it was rainin’ I was feeling fatigue
So I nodded off to sleep

It was then I saw the light from the sun
When I woke up, I knew the magic was gone
All cuz, you keep runnin’
You keep runnin’ away

Boy:
So can we live this moment all over again
I know we’re not lovers, but we could pretend
We could sail across the world, in the sheets of your bed
Oh

Together:
So can we live this moment all over again
I know we’re not lovers, but we could pretend
We could sail across the world, in the sheets of your bed
Oh

Boy:
So can we live this moment all over again
I know we’re not lovers, but we could pretend
We could sail across the world, in the sheets of your bed
Oh

Girl in background:
Can we live in this moment

Together:
We could just pretend

    General CommentA few corrections: It should be 'the scent that you wore sent dirty thoughts to my brain', 'when we awoke there was some distance between'. I think the song is about two people who dream about being with each other, in fact, i'm certain that's what it is. Beautiful song.
