Close your eyes real tight
Underneath the city lights,
And you can't hear the noise below your room.
Take a real deep breath
And get those feelings of your chest-
Work it out, and wake up in each other's arms.

Underneath it's never over;
(Looking back over my shoulder)
Looking back over my shoulder-
(Underneath it's never over)
We always said that we would meet again
When we were ten years older.

I hadn't thought about her in a while,
Until she showed up in a dream I had lying listless in a bed,
With a string of broken hearts hanging from her finger.
I said, "Let's take a drive with a pack of camel lights
Into the middle of nowhere
And talk about our lives.

And here me say, "listen up" - silence -
"Can't let it go, got to get it out"
"Listen up" - silence -
"Can't let it go, got to get it out"
Chin up; chin up until it touches the moon.
Sad and forsaken one, it's you I'm talking to.

You can't take it back (no)
You can't take it back (no)
This bullshit I took it and crushed it and painted it black
I swallowed the match; it's burning up my insides.

So
"Listen up" - silence -
"Can't let it go, got to get it out"
"Listen up" - silence -
"Can't let it go, got to get it out"
Chin up; chin up until it touches the moon.
Sad and forsaken one, it's you I'm talking to.

Close your eyes real tight
Underneath the city lights
And you can't hear the noise below your room.
Take a real deep breath
And get those feelings off your chest-
Work it out and wake up in each other's arms.

Underneath it's never over;
(Looking back over my shoulder)
Looking back over my shoulder-
(Underneath it's never over)
We always said that we would meet again when we were ten years older.

"Listen up" - silence -
"Can't let it go, got to get it out"
"Listen up" - silence -
"Can't let it go, got to get it out"
"Listen up" - silence -
"Can't let it go, got to get it out"

Chin up; chin up until it touches the moon.
Sad and forsaken one
Oh
It's you I'm talking to.
