you’ll buy the ids on ebay for a song
they’ll have lots of flaws but we’ve always been so good at playing along
so I'm your ryan adams, and you're my darling ms. plath
and you might miss somebody, baby, but trust me, it won’t last

when we reach the border, you know the forgeries will fly
you’ll smile so sweetly with a concealed weapon strapped to your right thigh
creatures of comfort; you said that’s how we’d always be
watching others hurtle through the universe while we just maintain a constant course and speed

well, here’s to constant course and speed!

it feels so close but not quite right
so you bring the music and I’ll bring the ride
kick the volume up from the passenger side
and we’ll just disappear into a beautiful night

I can’t pound the pavement for our love
no one’s shouting from the rooftops

there’s no happy ending, no disaster to come
things just go on and on and on and on, ad infinitum
but I can’t pound the pavement for us
no one’s shouting from the rooftops
