I can hear your car
As you're driving in circles.
Reluctant to park
Until you're ready and stable, yeah.

So walk with me into the fire.
Come on, follow me close behind.

So we'll go where they won't know
Our secrets and sorrows
We should leave while we can
And be gone by tomorrow
Can't you see how the second hand turns?
We should go while the candle still burns.

You hesitate to start.
You just stand there with your hands bare
And wonder who you are.
And you take too much to heart.
So you build another thrill
'Till this one falls apart.

So walk with me into the fire.
Come on, follow me close behind...

So we'll go where they won't know
Our secrets and sorrows
We should leave while we can
And be gone by tomorrow
Can't you see how the second hand turns?
We should go while the candle still burns.

And have you ever
Let another
Put out your flame?

And have you ever
Said I'm a fool
To stay in the same place...?

So we'll go where they won't know
Our secrets and sorrows
We should leave while we can
And be gone by tomorrow
Can't you see how the second hand turns...?

And we'll go where they won't know
Our secrets and sorrows
We should leave while we can
And be gone by tomorrow
Can't you see how the second hand turns?
We should go while the candle still burns.
Said we should go while the candle still burns.

    General Commentfor me, it's about this ordinary guy who is reluctant to try new things or do something outrageous and spontaneous.
    and there's this other enthusiastic person who's urging him to go on a brand new adventure with them.
    this other person tells him there's no time to waste, his clock is running out and he should not be a stick in the mud.

    it could also mean that she's trying to run away from everyone in their hometown and all the things they know about them.
