"The Get Away" as written by Derek James Fudesco, Andrea Nicole Zollo, Nicholas Aaron Dewitt, Jason Crowe Clark and Nathan Patrick Johnson....
She said she’d like it to snow
The same way it did in upstate New York
He never liked it that cold
And she said, and she said
I never want to go home
Massachusetts, Michigan, I don’t know
Just as long as it’s us

That’s all that matters

Well I know that you stole
About two bills and a little gold
From your parents drawer
And he said, and he said
How far will this get us from here?
And I don’t want to talk about
What’s back there
We can never go, we can never go
How far will this get us from here?
And I don’t want to talk about
What’s back there
We can never go, we can never go home

Yeah we can never go home
And we can, and we can
Yeah we can never go home

And he said, and he said
I never want to go home
We’ll be ok on our own
Just as long as it’s us
And she said, and she said

How far will this get us from here?
And I don’t want to talk
About what’s back there
We can never go, we can never go
How far will this get us from here?
And I don’t want to talk
About what’s back there
We can never go,
We can never home
Yeah we can never go home
And we can, and we can
Yeah we can never go home

And she said, and she said
And he said, and he said

    General Commentyeah this song hits me pretty hard as well.
    maybe because it's absolutely spectacular.

    the guitars thru the chorus really add a little something. i don't know what's up with this..me and these slow jams. i'm diggin em. a lot a lot.

    General Commenthow far will this get us from here, i love that line, it's so perfect, the entire song is just great, if anyone ever needed to runaway, even if it's in their head for the length of this song, it is a perfect song, it's also a great theme song for anyone with problems, which really is all of us

    "just as long as its us, that's all that matters"

    General CommentThis really is a great song, titled well- the Getaway. That's exactly it- it's about getting away. It's about moving from your old roots to find a new life, about getting out of that rut and running away from it all, with someone you love.
    I always want to put this song on when I'm driving.

    General CommentSeems to emphasize "You can never go home" quite a bit. But in an embracing kind of way.

    As my very cool/wise friend Tim once said...
