Doves – The Outsiders lyrics

Johnny be lost
Johnny be calm
Walk away
Don't jump the gun

Cutting the cost
Thinking it through
Look in your own way
Making your own rules

Don't believe
What they say
Johnny be cool, yeah
Johnny be calm

Just the two of us
Makin' fools of us
Just the two of us
Wanna feel again
Kickin' our heels again
Just the two of us

Nothing to lose
So nothing gets lost
Measure the truth
Then measure the cost

So much choice
In trust on
In the universe
Just the two of us
Just the two of us
Just the two of us
Making fools of us
Making fools of us
Wanna feel again
Kickin' our heels again
The two of us
