Five miles outside of Vegas when we broke down
And we never looked back
We got all drunk and sloppy on a Greyhound bus
They were laughing at us
I will never let them break your heart

Seemed like such a long time
On those thin white lines
I did some time
Life just keeps on getting smaller

Yes I know this is true
And that's not easy to do
I know there will come a day
And just go running away

When the storms came
Hitching rides in the rain
You was happy talking dirty

You say there is no perfect place
We are just learning how to smile

When we can run away (hey...hey)
And run away (hey...hey)
We can leave this place
We can leave it all behind

When we can leave

No I will never let it break me
Five miles outside of Vegas
We got married in the desert

That happens everyday
You make it all go away
Yes I know there ain't no finish line
We are learning how to fall

I know there is nothing new
How to live together

When you say "baby let's just run away"
Ah baby we can leave
Yes we can leave this place

And run away (hey... hey)
And run away (hey... hey) [Repeat: x5]
