I stand overlooking this town
to miles I thought I'd never find
overlooking lights from cars that pass
you know I can't forget that night

we started running away, fell asleep in the rain
you look too cute when you sleep, it's too big to escape
i'm not coming back home if i had to

and girl, youre the one you know i really wanna fall asleep to
i can't fall asleep to just anyone
and i've read the letters to sign for the better
the summer i spent was the last perfect thing about this year
in time i want you by my side
for tonight, i'll like my chances when it's us against the world

well these rooftops are made for dreamers
i've never felt so alive
overlooking lights, i hope like hell that you stay with me tonight
it's everything worth dying for
it's not hard to see the heart in this
i'm the one who's faded, waiting, hoping you'll stay

and girl, youre the one you know i really wanna fall asleep to
i can't fall asleep to just anyone
and i've read in the letters to sign for the better
the summer i spent was the last perfect thing about this year
in time i want you by my side
for tonight, i'll like my chances when it's us against the world

she saves me from everything
she makes me feel alive
my frequency on high
a clean break, a new start
a new star to fall from
and i'll make it better
counting down the ways to say you will

and i've read in the letters to sign for the better
the summer i spent was the last perfect thing about this year
in time i want you by my side
for tonight, i'll like my chances when it's us against the world

we'll keep the radio off
when we're going to sleep
when you're beside me, i hear your heartbeat
i'm not coming back home if i had to, you know
