When I need a place to get away
When I need a place to hide
That place just seems oh so far away
Couldn't get there if I tried
No

Me and a young friend chasing mosquitoes
Rolling down them grassy hills
We put up a sign that said "No Vacancy"
Forget the world, let time stand still

If I could think back and see this thing clearly
If I could just remember when
Of all the things I hold so dear to me
I miss the people we were then
And it seems that you were always there
Like no one else you stood by me
And when you picked me up and cleaned me off
And saw what not one else could see

I take a train sister
A bus, a broken down Chevy
A plane, or
I'd walk my sister just to see you there
Just to see you again, Now

When I need a place to get away
When I need a place to hide
Well that place just seems oh so far away
Couldn't get there if I tried

Me and a young girl chasing mosquitoes
Rolling down them grassy hills
We put up a sign that said "No Vacancy"
Forget the world, let time stand still

I take a train sister,
A bus, a broken down Chevy,
A plane, or
I'd walk my sister just to see you there
Just to see you again, now
Just to see you again, mhmmmm
