Lyrics

Verse 1
When we broke down, in that small mining town,
I was ready for quittin', my guard was down,
It was summer all day, in your dad's chevrolet,
and so we decided to stay

Chorus 1
And we want spectacular views
If we're to stay for the weekend
And you swear, there'll be no bad news
If we stay, if we stay, without looking back

Verse 2
We'll take a small private room, with a window please,
If it opens that's fine, to let in the breeze,
We've been waitin' all year for someone to just say:
Everyone fucks up its gonna be okay

Chorus 2
And the prop planes, they fly overhead
You can hear them returning.
And maybe, it's all in my head
But I'll save my complaints for tomorrow

Verse 3
And when you got sick, I was sad for some days,
But I'm feelin' much better, I just sleep it away.
Now it's just like we never was,
Some things go bad just because.

Chorus 3
And the freeways, they go coast to coast,
They've taken away all my good friends.
And I don't care if you're broke,
You can't stay here tomorrow.

Chorus 4
And the dreams have come back again,
But this time I'm not just watching them.
It's me as pilot instead,
And I land the plane all by myself.

(strum)
        C                G  C
No you can't stay here tomorrow.
