lyrics

So you wrote it down and
Found out nothing seemed to look just right
Straightest lines and bright, white lights behind your eyes
They find each other here at night.

I heard tell you went back to the well
And found yourself in all the old familiar places
Is this blowing kisses to the wind
Or is it simply spitting in familiar faces?

If it were up to me,
We wouldn't spend another minute inside this place
And we would go and see all the night has left to show
And it would set us free
Cutting loose, cutting our teeth on the unknown

Boxes of old letters that you never did intend to send
There, under your bed
With the laces of those old, red shoes that never fit
You must admit you laughed about it
Didn't you?

So throw your hands up now
Forget about the words you heard me say
A million miles behind my smile
Forever gone, forever far away

If it were up to me
We wouldn't spend another minute inside this place
And we would go and see all the night has left to show
And it would set us free
Cutting loose, cutting our teeth on the unknown

Boxes of old letters that you never did intend to send
There, under your bed
With the laces of those old, red shoes that never fit
You must admit you laughed about it
Didn't you?

If it were up to me
We wouldn't spend another minute inside this place
And we would go and see all the night has left to show
And it would set us free
Cutting loose, cutting our teeth on the unknown
Oh, come with me
We shouldn't spend another minute inside this place
And we should go and see all the night has left to show
And it'll set us free
Cutting loose, cutting our teeth on the unknown
