Went to bed, as the sun rose
Woke up this morning in yesterday's clothes
Up all night, sharing a secret
You're on a promise, and I'm gonna keep it
Unplug the alarm, or at least press reset
There's no way I'm getting up yet

Just another five, another five minutes
That train's gone and we're not in it
My heart can't take the strain
Give me thirty minutes and we'll blame it on the...

When we get there, no one will know
That we didn't wash, and slept in our clothes
I thought we both understood, a warm (?) just feels too good
Up all night, sharing a secret
You're on a promise, and I'm gonna keep it

Just another five, another five minutes
That train's gone and we're not in it
My heart can't take the strain
Give me thirty minutes and we'll blame it on the...
Think of all the times they kept you waiting
You could be in bed, it's so frustrating
Just for once, let them take the blame
Give me thirty minutes and we'll blame it on the...

Stay with me, stay here with me
Stay with me, stay here with me
Go, go, don't go, stay here with me
Stay, right here, with me

Half an hour's not hard to explain
Give me thirty minutes and we'll blame it on the...
Half an hour's not hard to explain
Give me thirty minutes and we'll blame it on the...
Half an hour's not hard to explain
Give me thirty minutes and we'll blame it on the...

Outside, looks like rain
Come under the covers, we'll blame it on the trains
