Long summer hair with the windows down

We were bathing in the water of the beauty we had found

She was a queen but I was a clown

Everything ended like a bullet to a crown

I found a fountain in the hills of New York

And I washed my hands of the blood that we poured

I found a lover who was hiding in the sand

She took me by the arm yeah she took me by the hand

And she took me down to where the young souls war

Behind the parking lot of the pizza store

And I held her to my heart and I told her what I thought

Baby, I know you got it

So come on up, my darling

I’ve been waiting for you here

A little ray of sunlight will make our scratches disappear
If you wanna dance, I can bring a pair of shoes

Wrap me in your arms and teach me how to move

Well, me and my baby we been on the run ever since

Searching for paradise in folded up tents 

She says that I don’t like talking in the future tense,

But my mind’s always filling up with plans.

But lately I’ve noticed a distance

A distance between you and me
I’m not sure how wide it really is
But I’m fearing, I’m fearing

Now the spring is upon us 
and our backs are to the state
These chains will untangle us in strange ways
Everybody’s leaving for some foreign coast,

But me and my baby we gonna take it slow

So come on up, my darling

I’ve been waiting for you here

A little ray of sunlight will make our scratches disappear

I know a place where all the lonely pilgrims go

I know you’re scared but if we don’t try you’ll never know

Pack the car in the middle of the night

Leave the apartment for the last time

Drive down state to where the empire lies

Drive across that river into the dark, into the fire

Well after tonight our bodies will be free

Nothing left behind us but what we choose to see

And I can feel it running like a current underneath

I don’t know much but I know one thing:

Happiness and good times are coming.
