Utah nights of '94 we were barely man enough for Mormon lore sneaking out past the temple locks the silent lake is where we make the drop can't stop me the calm of the salt sea can't stop me who'd want to love me? love's a perfect storm (I'm drowning in you) I remember the way that you kissed holding my hand in case you'd think to miss brushing your hair across my salty lips lets swim back home before we float or tip can't stop me the calm of the salt sea can't stop me who'd want to love me? love's a perfect storm (I'm drowning in you) don't wait

I've got a license to drive just teenage excuses and crystalline lies I've got a reason to try cause when we expire, we can't get much higher Mercedes Lane, the curls I can't avoid the pink dress looks better on the Caddy floor save a sip for me, it's my night to dream do you want me? want me? I've got a license to drive just teenage excuses and crystalline lies I've got a reason to try cause when we expire, we can't get much higher the engines dead, the trunk becomes her bed let's fix the dents and take the while again Archie's glow, the last I'll ever know less is more, Les is more I've got a license to drive just teenage excuses and crystalline lies I've got a reason to try cause when we expire, we can't get much higher didn't even fail, didn't even fail reverse rides, the coffee never spills didn't even fail, didn't even fail the White Golf, the girl, it's all too real I've got a license to drive just teenage excuses and crystalline lies I've got a reason to try cause when we expire, we can't get much higher

smoke rings it's a smooth attack I guess we'll never make it back stand up and come alone with me the beat ticks, 1,2,3 staring out the window reasons aside we're never gonna make it alive speeds cold but these hands are warm light speed will keep us hanging on we're just two deep space lovers and this feels alright zero gravity high in the cold sunlight now the years, they're rolling on moonlight fades into one can't remember if the Earth survives blinking lights in every single size twinkle twinkle on all the stars just make a wish and I won't be so far sky's the limit, so close your eyes space is dry, but you won't be tonight we're just two deep space lovers and this feels alright zero gravity high in the cold sunlight zero gravity high

They don’t even know you’re name Anonymous blood and carnal gains Playing hide and seek for days Our love is buried in cocaine (sin pays) Spell it out or swallow your pride (oh no) Spell it out or swallow your pride (oh no) Spell it out or say goodbye Just look the camera in the eye Faces on the corner bodies on the screen films can’t keep us younger It feels so good (feels so good) to dream Barely old enough to drive You’re pulling the chord on these boogie lights Spreading east past the 405 To the Valley, lust is life (it’s time) Spell it out or swallow your pride (oh no) Spell it out or swallow your pride (oh no) Spell it out or say goodbye Just look the camera in the eye Faces on the corner bodies on the screen films can’t keep us younger It feels so good (feels so good) to dream you're gonna be a star

when I look in your window it seems like make believe just an empty suit case, your car in a hole you're free the funeral couldn't change my mind I know you're out there, I know you're out there the police man says they never found a body nobody the lakes too deep, the hearts too weak the newsman spewing the black from the bottle the headlines bleed, the taglines cheap the funeral couldn't change my mind I know you're out there, I know you're out there

the Silver Lake is emptied out past the double lines that made you real all the broken promises and the doted lights that were born waiting on the deal you're hustling the millionaires for the extra points inside the stars with red hands pointing up, it's a lonely door you're behind Johnny's not too far it's you when every song has a meaning and you can't fake your love for me (some never asked to survive) going back to Omaha spy the dirty vans, they're passing through told me I should double down but I'll fold my hands till I find you it's you when every song has a meaning and you can't fake your love for me (some never asked to survive) who's the loser? don't cross the border again we never asked to survive

bills were made to burn checks were made to take their turns love is born on the dance floor looking at me mirror balls can't hide the fact it's quarter to three where do you want me? all you'll ever know is what you buy tonight rolling up the paper bonds this high is mine banks were made to fail invest in easy love or just get lost in the bail deposits on me all you'll ever know is what you buy tonight rolling up the paper bonds this high is mine I believe it keeps my heart from stopping

fly away across the pond where they get my songs it's a holiday who's to blame if I take too much I don't even need to know your name borders crossed Paris nights I chased away with Lisbon teeth who'd have thought the stamps that bind were made by western thinking teens please won't your read my hips mispronounce the chance eastern time is all we know (I won't read your lips) (you don't steal my kiss) Fabric calls let's dance away the bass deflects but lingers on it's hostel law we're sneaking in and throwing love against the wall push it off to eastern girls the ballerina china dolls please won't your read my hips mispronounce the chance eastern time is all we know (I won't read your lips) (you don't steal my kiss)

throw me out just like a foster on the porch a hero behind the bar I'm not insane like the doctors swore scores were made to be shattered on the 8-bit screen there's too much history a California high life teen because we're too young to make this last forever we're too strong the art of progress metal statues lining the sides of pixel road where mothers dare to roll the dice on a broken home but it's too late now, I've gone and found the sea you're selling pictures of me good news it comes in threes because we're too young to make this last forever we're too strong the art of progress our names, our names, inside these songs even if our intentions come off wrong our names, our names, inside these songs we'll prove them wrong, we'll prove them wrong we'll make this, we'll make this last forever we'll prove them wrong

"are you alone?" that's how it started saving half a shot to feel like it's worth it amongst the chaos we'll grow like a mushroom outside Tokyo giants on the stage ants on the scene buying beauty to feel in-between English girls with the tourist hearts blurry photos won't finish what we started did it translate the first time? did I translate the first time? to you? you're laying by the phone we sang together I just wanna hear your voice, even if we talk the weather we're not gonna change our minds feelings trapped inside, let's let them fall and die did it translate the first time? did I translate the first time? it's a lonely way to live "it's a lonely world"
