Busted driver's side window
Preventing my escape
And the way you pulled your hat down low
In case we're caught on tape
The static on the radio
Sounds like a breaking wave
You told me not to turn it off
And you told me you're afraid

That if we don't ditch this town today
We're gonna be here until we die
But Valerie, we can't leave this way

The stars are blown across the sky
Like trash cans on a windy day
The gas is running low
And we have got no way to pay
But you're more concerned with the way the streetlights
Are passing by in time
With your heartbeat and my breathing
And the blinking double yellow line

But I am begging you to put away the gun
Valerie, before this gets out of hand

And I woke up kicking from a dream
Where you and I were caught
And they wrapped me in a business suit
And left me there to rot

Now you're burnt out like the dashboard lights
And you're calmer than before
And you said I could leave if I wanted to
But that doesn't make sense to me anymore

I'd rather run, like a dying sun
Eager to collapse
I'd rather let the bloodhounds think
We're headed straight into their traps
But they won't know where to find us
They won't even know where to look
So Valerie, you can count me in

(Then you sing some "Oh's")
