Shots In The Dark

lyrics

We may not be the smartest kids,
and I know we lack the class of some,
but I can guarantee we have more fun than anyone.
Between hidden meanings in our story lines,
the subtle hints between two sides,
I can't recall a time that I've had so much fun.

And for this endless five days, I'll live nocturnally,
fighting sleep and simple nourishment my body needs,
allow exhaustion to take hold
of every corner of my psyche
just to pass out in your arms
in the quiet hours of the morning.
I'll embrace the simple feelings we've allowed to bud,
and taste the bittersweet life in this lustful blood,
if it means I'll spend another hour
fighting everything I know
is guaranteed to end the second you get up and go.
We got tonight.

We've got one night for all this to last,
before it's all in the past
and everybody goes their separate ways.
The comfort of our private thoughts,
now documented at the cost of prying eyes
that just can't wait.

And for this endless five days, I'll live nocturnally,
fighting sleep and simple nourishment my body needs,
allow exhaustion to take hold
of every corner of my psyche
just to pass out in your arms
in the quiet hours of the morning.
I'll embrace the simple feelings we've allowed to bud,
and taste the bittersweet life in this lustful blood,
if it means I'll spend another hour
fighting everything I know
is guaranteed to end the second you get up and go.
We got tonight.

If anyone knew what could have become,
if anyone could savor such a time, it's us.
We got tonight.
