lyrics

Raindrops fall on the window sill, they echo down the hall
I cling to the rhythm they sing and lean against the wall
I would lie for you no matter what you said
And I would die for you, take a bullet to the chest

So don’t run away, my dear in the headlights
We can escape this permanent low life
All I can say is I’m better when you’re here
So don’t run away, my dear

Lightning cracks the twilit sky and shakes me to the core
As the scent of you comes rushing in, I crumble to the floor
I would lie for you no matter what you said
And I would die for you, I’d take a bullet to the chest

So don’t run away, my dear in the headlights
We can escape this permanent low life
All I can say is I’m better when you’re here
So don’t run away, my dear

We can hide in bed and get so high on sex and cigarettes
That all our troubles seem to float away
We can fall asleep and wake up at the center of our dreams
As real as you’ll let them be

Don’t run away, my dear in the headlights
We can escape this permanent low life
All I can say is I’m better when you’re here
So don’t run away, my dear
