Great Escape

Pat MonahanBuy this song

Thought I could but I just can't wait
Started plannin' for my great escape
Where I'd live and what I'd leave behind

Made a list of things I'd have to take
The things that make me feel like shit, for heavens sake
Who I'd love and who would tow the line

And I need you
Everybody needs someone like you
If you need me to
You would be the only thing that I'd take
On my great escape

I float through this town like a cosmonaut
Remindin' me of all the things I haven't got
Like time and space, a smile on my face and you

And I need you
Everybody needs someone like you
If you need me to
You would be the only thing that I'd take with me

Maybe I'll find that my destination
Is somewhere I already know
And you were as far as I ever had to go

And I need you
(Thought I could but I just can't wait)
Everybody needs someone like you
(Started plannin' for my great escape)

If you need me to
(Who I'd love and who I'd leave behind)
You would be the only thing that I'd take with me
(Who I'd leave behind)

I need you
(Who I'd leave behind)
Everybody needs someone like you

If you need me to
You would be the only thing that I?d take
On my great escape
On my great escape
