Well, she is just a broken girl
Grinding out her nights with hopes of seeing the world
Driving that truck to Oceanside just to lay like a cricket
Fade into the night
And I am just a lonely boy
Been crawling out bars
Trying to stay in the noise
Chasing down Kerouac's American dream
I've been chasing it now for far too long, it seems
Far too long

We're both just lovers tangled up in blues
We're both just lovers, so young and so confused
Well, I ain't ever seen the Mississippi sunrise
So darling, let's get in that truck tonight
I bet we make it there in time

Cause he we're just two mad kids
We're just running around this town trying to burn it down
Trying to wreck our clothes and bottle the heat
So we can chug it back down
Scrape our dirty knees
Cause we can still make believe
We're anyone we want with whatever we need
Well, tonight, I'll be Johnny
If you like, baby, you be June

I whisper to you, "Hey there, honey
I got some money tucked in this old jean jacket
I got two suitcases begging to be filled
So grab your bandanas
Grab all your pretty things
We'll pack them up just to leave them here
And see what highway ninety brings"

So let's run away tonight
We ain't got nothing left to lose
Let's run away tonight
We ain't got nothing left to lose
So let's run away tonight
We ain't got nothing left to lose
Let's run away tonight
Hell, we ain't got nothing to do
