"don't kid yourself", you said to me
"we'll pack our bags but never leave this room.
we'll never leave this room."
what happened to our plans, our dreams?
we buried them on this small street too soon, too soon

i know you're scared, but so am i.
if we never leave, then we'll never try.

you and i want to know what we were
hand in hand, as unbreakable as stone
you and i, we wont get rolled under
when the waves crash down, we'll stay afloat
you and i want to know we'll make it
selling out this godforsaken town
before this ship goes down.

let's take a chance and leave tonight
believe me dear, we'll be alright
it's true, we'll alright, it's true
we'll turn the key and take the wheel
no looking back, this time it's real
with you, yeah, with you

i know you're scared, but so am i.
if we never leave, then we'll never try.

you and i want to know what we were
hand in hand, as unbreakable as stone
you and i, we wont get rolled under
when the waves crash down, we'll stay afloat
you and i want to know we'll make it
selling out this godforsaken town
before this ship goes down.

we wont go down
this time it's now or never
forget the map, we've got each other
we wont go down
this time it's now or never
we'll leave this place forever

i know you're scared, but so am i.
if we never leave, then we'll never try.

you and i want to know what we were
hand in hand, as unbreakable as stone
you and i, we wont get rolled under
when the waves crash down, we'll stay afloat
you and i want to know we'll make it
selling out this godforsaken town
before this ship goes down.

you and i want to know what we were
hand in hand, as unbreakable as stone
you and i, we wont get rolled under
when the waves crash down, we'll stay afloat
you and i want to know we'll make it
selling out this godforsaken town
before this ship goes down.
