We stumble out on the boulevard in our summer jackets
just before sunset
we've gathered blankets and flashlights, water and supplies
now I follow your lead
a big sun in the sky
looks like a medal or a price

The rain falls like bricks when we arrive
one hour later
of course we have to jump the fence, but then there's a hillside
and a star filled night
we settle in the dirt
feel like astronauts on planet earth

Shaky all day
we've been hanging around, just talking
playing the same song
over and over again
but now that we're here
you have to tell me again
the you're never, never
prepared for it when it happens

I'll be tender and I'll be brave
I can hold your hand if it breaks
and I'll form the perfect circle
and light the scented candles if that's what it takes

A clear sound in my throat when the light came down
A shiver running down my spindle when light came down
I ran for the exit with a fire burning in my head
I ran for the exit with sparks flying from my head

I look up at the floodlights
beating down just like floodlights
we're trapped inside this reservoir
of beautiful glass eyes
and tonight we'll reassemble our bodies in the dark
we can give each other new names
see, I came here because you asked me to
and I won't be afraid when it's time
to get up and leave
