Going to India when the love breaks
Going to India watch all elephants

fly away from the pain strap us in cause a priest can't cure us like an old guitar.
There's a place full of waste-laid dreams, everyday I'm on the corner playing his sitar.
Gotta go cause I know she'll look forward and there's nothing too exact to create yourself
If she does in the eye of a dove cause It feels like her love is lost as well

Going to India when the love breaks
Going to India watch the men charm the snakes

Run away from the pain
Cause you know that there's nothing left to lose when you're chasing a dream
Get up high when you go cuz you know that she’s looking inside and she needs to scream
Find a place where you’ll face into haze and the dark damned feeling that captivates
good faith in your nature, that is, invent yourself don't change your ways

And oh how confusing this love can be
You get the fuck out but you don't leave
Don’t leave

Going to India when the love breaks
Going to India watch all the elephants

fly away from the pain strap us in cause a priest can't cure us like an old guitar.
There's a place full of waste-laid dreams, everyday I'm on the corner playing his sitar.
Gotta go cause I know she'll look forward and there's nothing too exact to create yourself
If she does in the eye of a dove cause It feels like her love is lost as well

So fly away
Don’t fly away
Don’t you fly away
Don’t you fly away

    General CommentI know this has nothing to do with the meaning of the song, but it's funny.

    One time when I spent the night over at my bf's house, I woke up to the line "going to India to watch all the elephants", and the sound of heavy footsteps in the hall.
    HaHa, get it?

    General CommentThis was the song that gt me hooked on Boy hits car, when i heard it, it was unlike anything i had ever heard, and i just listened to it over and over, its not so much the music or the lyrics, its just the fushion of the 2 and the way it merges to create an amazing sounding song

    General CommentI believe this song is about attempting to escape when you're in love and things start to get tough.

    At least that is what the lines
    "And oh how confusing this love can be
    You get the fuck out but don't you leave
    Don’t leave"
    mean to me.

    Maybe it is just an escape for them from all of the realities of their love.

    Yeah.... =P Take it or leave it.
