With that we got it
We're undefeated
Give me a long kiss
Like you mean it

A little bloodshed
But it was worth it
We made a promise
After this we'd quit

Turn on the motor
Keep off the headlights
To the cabin
In the cover of night

Slow down
Wheels on the gravel
Use the key
Hidden in the panel

Wood stove
Like a warm heart
Wall shadows
This is the best part

Put it in the chest
Under the trapdoor
Unroll the carpet
Across the cold floor

Like we planned it
When the clock chimes
Turn around once
And tap three times

Remember it'll all blow over
We'll meet again when the temperature is lower
If we don't turn each other in dear
We'll be fine

Time to disappear

With that we got it
We're undefeated
Give me a long kiss
Like you mean it

A little bloodshed
But it was worth it
We made a promise
After this we'd quit

We made a promise
After this we'd quit

Remember it'll all blow over
We'll meet again when the temperature is lower
If we don't turn each other in dear
We'll be fine

Time to disappear

Time to disappear

We disappear

Remember it'll all blow over
We'll meet again when the temperature is lower
If we don't turn each other in dear
We'll be fine

Time to disappear

    General CommentThe song is about 2 lovers that have committed a crime that has left them in possession of some kind of valuable loot. They go to a cabin and hide the loot in a chest and put the chest under a trapdoor. They then promise each other that they'll return for the treasure once the heat from the crime they've committed has blown over. The girl tells her lover that they'll be fine as long as they don't turn on each other and turn themselves in.

    Beautiful song with uncomplicated but emotive lyrics. For me the line "Time to disappear" evokes the feelings of excitement and anxiety that the couple is feeling. Also very cool vocals :)
