"Unwind" as written by and Guy Edward John Garvey....
Do I have the wrong idea?
I'll be your fire escape
If you can make the time
To end this less than perfect year
I see us dancing
Dear mystery overseas
Can we unwind?
Can we unwind?

Missing persons in both names
Wrapped in our parachute
Talking till early light
Nervous grace in a stranger's perfect face
Just isn't lost on me
Can we find the trust we need
Just to unwind?
Just to unwind?

Can I picture us in a skyline scene?
Can I see your face like a waking dream?
Can I hear your heart?
Can I hang my hat?
Can you risk your time on a whim like that?

Could you take my hand?
Could you leave your phone?
Could you let me lead you away from home?
Can I hear your heart?
Can I hang my hat?
Can you risk your time on a whim like that?

Can I see my years folding into yours?
Can I see myself walking in your door?
Can I hear your heart?
Can I hang my hat?
Can you risk your time on a whim like that?

Could you take my hand?
Could you leave your phone?
Could you let me lead you away from home?
Can I hear your heart?
Can I hang my hat?
Could you risk your time on a whim like that?

Can I picture us in a skyline scene?
Can I see your face like a waking dream?
Can I see my years folding into yours?
Can I see myself walking in your door?

    My InterpretationThis song for me creates an image of someone escaping troubles back home and escaping to New York (the skyline scene). There the "escapee" is sitting in a cafe and they see a beautiful woman (a mystery overseas, and a stranger with a perfect face), and imagine being with her, in every sense of the word.

    The parachute they're wrapped in in verse 2 refers to this escaping it all, the troubles back home and "parachuting" out of them, and also the bed sheets around them as they lie there together.
