Let's run away where the seasons roll right in
Throw our cares into the wind
Try and disappear again
And we can take a trip to the water where we kissed
Hold my hand, we'll get through this
I'll bring a smile to your lips

Illinois's on the edge but we'll take it back
Every word I've said but never spoken
If it comes to the end, then I'll bring you back
And our words will stay forever golden
Illinois, Illinois

Quiet now, quiet down
We have to find our way back out
Out of town, we're stuck here now
It's just me and you, let's talk this out
Right now, you know how much I need you
Oh, I need you by my side
And I need you tonight

Illinois's on the edge but we'll take it back
Every word I've said but never spoken
If it comes to the end, then I'll bring you back
And our words will stay forever golden
Illinois, Illinois

Is there some other rythym to the night
I already looked into your eyes
Is there some other rythym to the night
(Call me back when the words are golden
Call me back, move on, call me back, move on)
I already looked into your eyes
(Call me back when the words are golden
Call me back, move on)

Illinois's on the edge but we'll take it back
Every word I've said but never spoken
If it comes to the end, then I'll bring you back
And our words will stay forever golden
Illinois, Illinois
Illinois, Illinois
(Call me back when the words are golden
Call me back, move on, call me back, move on
Call me back when the words are golden)

    General CommentI love this song. Dunno exactly how Illinois relates to the bittersweet kind of love story depicted in the rest of the song, other than the band is from there and whatever experiences they are referring to ("the water where we kissed", etc.) took place there. Can't help singing along to the chorus.
