She don't lie in bed at night
Staring at the ceiling
She don't wait to begin

She bets on long shots
She wants what they've got
She skates where the ice thins

On and on, we keep going
Crowded like subway cars
On and on to the beat of our noisy hearts
Our hearts

She was her mother's secret
She was daddy's girl
She brought weekend boys home
In her curls

She said, “My love is a fever
Come on, touch my skin
They all think I'm easy
I'm easy 'cause I let them win”

On and on, we keep going
Crowded like subway cars
On and on to the beat of our noisy hearts

On and on, we keep going
Crowded like subway cars
On and on to the beat of our noisy hearts
To the beat of our noisy hearts

She said, “Pick up the phone
'Cause I need to get more alone
And your voice drives me crazy”

On and on, we keep going
Crowded like subway cars
On and on to the beat of our noisy hearts

On and on, we keep going
Crowded like subway cars
On and on to the beat of our noisy hearts, hearts, hearts

'Cause on and on, we keep going
Crowded like subway cars
On and on to the beat of our noisy hearts
