Change the locks on the door.

Put out the light in the hall.

I do not live here anymore


Put the world in a box.

Turn the sign to the street.

Aim for where horizon and blue skies, meet


But all I know is

I'm not ready yet

For the light to dim

Got a suitcase, got regrets

But I'm hopeful yet


I've been a gifted thief

Stole everything for the cause

I never had fingers as light as yours


So wake up pretty girl

See the hope in small things

Disappointment can wear you thin


But all I know is

I'm not ready yet

For the light to dim

Got a suitcase, got regrets

But I'm hopeful yet

And I'll raise this glass of wine

And I'll say your name


So let's be killers babe

Make the great escape

From all the bitter words

Of every crowded street and empty heart

It's Christmas day, Brooklyn in the rain

But I am safe inside a better world of hope and memory

Drunk on velvet wine, southern cross for light

Deal your cards and hope that I can play a better hand this time

    Goddamn this is so applicable at the moment. Anyway, great song I think it's about going somewhere, getting somewhere in life but first deciding you're not totally giving up on where you are now.
