These lights and numbers are a bright sign
Smoke filled casinos
But what do we know
We'll take a chance
Looking for cheap thrills and fast rides
Spin till we're dizzy
Then gamble the sleep and now we dance

We stumble up and down the concrete
Led by distraction
The empty attraction leads us blind
Never intending for the complete
Like shadows and alleyways
The unknown continues biding time

We're chasing heaven as it fades into black
Can't get it back no we cannot get it back
It's like we're running crazy 8's around the track
Can't wait to come back, Can't wait to come back

Could you stay with me tonight?
We sleep we're dreaming and away it goes
And I think you'll believe one last time
You've got that feeling as my heart explodes

Sit your drink up on the cop car
Playing illegally
I'm bored of the fantasy
I'm done
I've never ever loved you so hard
But is that reality?
We can't face the battle in the dark

We're chasing heaven as it fades into black
Can't get it back no we cannot get it back
It's like we're running crazy 8's around the track
Can't wait to come back, Can't wait to come back

Could you stay with me tonight?
We sleep we're dreaming and away it goes
And I think you'll believe one last time
You've got that feeling as my heart explodes

We sit, we think, and we figure
Out just right where to start
As these waters rush together
We keep ripping them apart
Is this truth, is this real, is there something more to feel?
Do we change the sensation on the line again?
Have we now reached the end just to find the beginning again?

Could you stay with me tonight?
We sleep we're dreaming and away it goes
And I think you'll believe one last time
You've got that feeling as my heart explodes

[repeat]
