lyrics

I wish I lived by the sea
But only if you were there with me
I wish I lived on the bay
But only if I could wake to you everyday
You say you just wanna getaway
And I know it's hard to handle
If that's the case, go ahead and put the flame away
Before the candle burns your hand
I lit five matches tonight
Just to put them out in the end
One for my lover, the others for my friends
I lit five matches tonight
Just to put them out in the end
One for my lover, the others for my friends
I wish I lived on a mountain
Only if you'd look out with me
I wish I lived on a hilltop
Only if we'd sit under the apple tree
You say you just wanna getaway
And I know it's hard to handle
If that's the case, go ahead and put the flame away
Before the candle burns your hand
You say you just wanna getaway
And I know it's hard to catch
If that's the case, quit rolling in the hay
Before you drop a match
