Song Lyrics
i got lost in the milky way
met a girl in the fire brigade
she said honey, you don't have to stay
but you can't keep running away

so i hopped a bus to old riverside
if momma knew there'd be a fire and a fry
she said son, you don't have to lie
now straighten that old black tie

i got something running through my bloodstream
if there's one thing american girls got right
it's how to get to me tonight

alabama found me wandering through
she fogged a window up and then she drew
it read meet me in the back, you fool
or i'll stop dreaming of you

i got something running through my bloodstream
if there's one thing american girls got right
it's how to get to me tonight

then summer will go
and you and i both know
you'll find a new home in santa cruz
until then, a simple boy like me
just can't lose

Song Lyrics
with all of this space in-between us
they could build an airplane to meet us
tonight i'm gonna take the floor
listen through the pinewood
just what are we waiting for
it gets so complicated girl, i know

she says i'm unwell to be by myself
and me, a pocket full of change worth saving
if we spend one more new york summer waiting
that's alright with me
miss celebrity

with all of these letters between us
they could build a fine home to greet us
tonight i'm gonna take the couch
throw the lights and knock me out
broadway's a million miles
it gets so complicated girl, i know
