"Alibi" as written by Duncan Sheik and Duane Lavold....
Did you come down to give me
Or take me away
I ad so many things to tell you
But now I don't have much to say
This feeling like we´re hiding out, is getting in the way

Let's quit the town just look around
There's nothing here to keep us alive
If they try to run us down
You know I'm on your site

And I want you to be my alibi
So they won't find me
And they won't find you
An we may tell lies
But we may the true

Did you come down to take me
Or give me away
I had so many things to ask you
Now you don´t have much to say
And these alcoholic afternoons, are getting in the way

Let's quit the town just look around
There's nothing here to keep us alive
If they try to run us down
You know I'm on your site

And I want you to be my alibi
So they won't find me
And they won't find you
An we may tell lies
But we may the true

I want to be your alibi
'Til the day we die

    General CommentI've always wondered who the subjects are in this song..lovers, friends or parent/child, etc.? Wonder too what the circumstances are behind 'hiding out.' I guess a lot of possibilities come to mind. Great song!
