Living in living rooms and it's true that I haven't gone to bed since the last time that I saw you
'Cause going to couch or going to floor, well it doesn't quite provide the eight hours that my body is screaming for
'Cause we've been drivin' round singin' songs about drivin' round singin' songs
And I don't wanna have fun with anyone but you
So take the Great Ocean Road at midnight, I'll get in at three
And meet me in between where I am and where I wanna be.
'Cause every night's a Saturday night, every day's a Monday morning
Everything ever happened the past month and we didn't get a single warning
And everything that we believe about each other has been proven right it seems
And all we have left is what the King said,
'Don't fuck with our dreams.'
I set to wandering like I always say I do, walked the flat city streets looking for a sign of a past you
And knee deep in alcohol and borrowed souls I skipped another sonnet to open myself up to the hope and road
And as the dry wheat fields fly by ready to burn in the overtaking lane I take a second to learn
From the mangled advice I was given last night by the sweaty guys with the glassy eyes.
I wanna leave something permanent on this stretch of road
Something that won't fly away like the dust and the exhaust smoke we breathe in to strengthen the low.
Like when you said 'If I'm gonna die, at least I died helping someone.'
That's what you were thinking when you held together your arm
I can't take another late night phone call, from some other far-from-home hospital
I came so close to giving up, why has my way of coping become a reason to spill blood?
Bot now isn't the time for backing down, got our feet so firm on the ground.
So call me what you will, I don't care
I know what happened I was there
We know what happened we were there.
