"Permanent Tourists" as written by Brian Mcternan, Corey Warning, Matt Kennedy, Maxwell Andrew Sauer, Jared Nathan Wuestenberg and Tim Moore....
Alone on a plane
I woke to the engine stop
Plan a course outside
Just to get caught up
By every obstacle along the way

So much to explain
And only a single day
To plead my case
There's nothing else to do
Just hope it's not too late

For far too long I kept you in the dark
Can't believe it took so long to start

How can I find you now
'Cause it feels like time is running out
And I said when I left
That I would not ever let you down
Gotta find my way back somehow

I am much older now
And I feel like time is running out
When we get to the end
Can you promise that you'll be around
If I make you that promise now

Back out on the endless road
That's become my home
This entire year
On the lamb has shown me
All the more that this is in my blood

I don't mean to alarm
But the past two months
Have left me hysterical
It's time for something new
I get crazy without you

And all along we tried to keep apart
Can't believe it took so long to start

How can I find you now
'Cause it feels like time is running out
And I said when I left
That I would not ever let you down
Gotta find my way back somehow

I am much older now
And I feel like time is running out
When we get to the end
Can you promise that you'll be around
If I make you that promise now

Driving back to our town
Take it slow, keep it down
Put this mess in the ground
Just my love, you came around
Now it seems we'll let it shine
Mine and yours, yours and mine

Driving back to our town
Take it slow, keep it down
Put this mess in the ground
Just my love, you came around
