Did you come down to give me
Or take me away
I had so many things to tell you
But now I don't have much to say

This feeling like we're hiding out
Is getting in the way

Let's quit the town just look around
There's nothing here to keep us alive
If they try to run us down
You know I'm on your side
And I want you to be my alibi
So they won't find me
And they won't find you
And we may tell lies
But we may be true

Did you come down to take me
Or give me away
I had so many things to ask you
Now you don't have much to say

And these alcoholic afternoons
Are getting in the way

Let's quit the town just look around
There's nothing here to keep us alive
If they try to run us down
You know I''m on your side
And I want you to be my alibi
So they won't find me
And they won't find you
And we may tell lies
But we may be true
So they won't find me
And they won't find you
And we may tell lies
But we may be true

I want to be your alibi
Till the day we die
