The Great Escape (The Walls)

It was like the great escape Two of us making haste Through blinking cities and countryside These old French towns are quiet Well they must have a lot to hide Close the shutters, tell a lie Yeah, they must have a lot to hide Close those shutters, tell a lie We loved each other in twenty towns In hotel rooms and a waitress’s house Up narrow stairs in creaking beds On pillows full of prayers Left behind still unheard Until that moment undisturbed Left behind still unheard Until that moment undisturbed I bought you perfume in Italy It made me sneeze must be an allergy When we slept out in the woods the devil kept away from us while we were sleeping in our car out beneath the guilty stars while we were sleeping in our car someone else, was standing guard And did I give it all back to you? Well about that I’m not so sure Nature cannot tow the line When you’re born under a sign When you’re built to a design You spend your life trying to unwind Now we’re back beneath those stars and this is who we are I had a dream we were lifted off our feet We floated over broken glass
