These lights and numbers are a bright sign
Smoke filled casinos
But what do we know we'll take a chance
Looking for cheap thrills and fast rides
Spin till we're dizzy
Then gamble the sleep and now we dance

We stumble up and down the concrete
Led by distraction
The empty attraction keeps us blind
Never intending for the complete
Like shadows in alley ways
The unknown continues buying time

We're chasing heaven as it fades into black
Can't get it back no we can't get it back
It's like we're running crazy 8s 'round the track
Can't wait to come back, can't wait to come back

Could you stay with me tonight?
(We sleep we're dreaming and away it goes)
And I'll make you believe one last time
(And let you feel it as my heart explodes)

We sit and drink up on the cop car
Playing illegally
The boredom of fantasy, we're done
I've never ever loved you so hard
But is that reality?
We can't face the battle in the dark

We're chasing heaven as it fades into black
Can't get it back no we can't get it back
It's like we're running crazy 8s 'round the track
Can't wait to come back, Can't wait to come back

Could you stay with me tonight?
(We sleep we're dreaming and away it goes)
And I'll make you believe one last time
(And let you feel it as my heart explodes)

Could you stay with me tonight?
(We sleep we're dreaming and away it goes)
And I'll make you believe one last time
(And let you feel it as my heart explodes)

We sit, we think, and we figure out just right where to start
As these waters rush together
We keep ripping them apart
Is this truth?
Is this real?
Is there something more to feel?
Do we chase the sensation on blind appeal?
Have we now reached the end just to find the beginning again?

Stay with me tonight?
(We sleep we're dreaming and away it goes)
And I'll make you believe one last time
(And let you feel it as my heart explodes)

Could you stay with me tonight?
(We sleep we're dreaming and away it goes)
And I'll make you believe one last time
(And let you feel it as my heart explodes)

[repeat]
