Thought I could
But I just can't wait
Started planning
For the great escape
Where I'd live and
What I'd leave behind

Made a list of things
I'd have to take
The things that make me feel like hell
For heavens sake
Who I'd love and who would tow the line

And I need you
Everybody needs someone like you
If you need me too
You would be the only thing that I'd take
On my great escape

I float through this town like a cosmonaut
Reminding me of all the things I haven't got
Like time and space, a smile on my face and you

(Chorus)

Maybe I'll find that my destination
Is somewhere I already know?
And your were as far as I ever had to go

And I need you
Thought I could, but I just can't wait
Everybody needs someone like you
Started planning for me great escape
If you need me to
Who I love and who I'd leave behind
You would be the only thing that I'd take with me

I need you
Who I'd leave behind
Everybody needs someone like you
Who I'd leave behind
If you need me to
You would be the only thing that I take
On my great escape
