They call him "Lukas"
Climbing the stairs to talk to you
Comin' to tell his story
Every single one of which is true
Hello, Lukas
I'm please to meet you, now how do you do?

So they go driving
Out to the river like lovers do
You smell out the summer
Baby, the summer just smells of you
One day, I'm gonna be a famous writer
Some book like love in the afternoon
It was all Lukas could say
Maybe one day, we could run away, run away

I thought we never last
I thought we never last

Now here comes Lukas
He done everything he wanna do
It was twenty years later
Come back to do what he promised to
He come back to make her happy
But these things don't always wait for you
And poor Lukas was late
That's when he got back, she'll be married today
Gone away

I thought we never last
I thought we never last

And Lukas would say
For a million lonely people
Another long gone
For a million hearts that opened
A million break
And the world's just a fallen angel in my way
I'm up in heaven, you can hear them say
Lookin' for Lukas but Lukas was always runnin' away
