Lyrics



Two trains and a bus to get home

Sleeping on each other's shoulders

Three clicks and the magic is gone

Our big dreams have turned us into

Hopeless romantics

Anxiety magnets

These streets are pulling at my memories

Pulling out my teeth



Don't it ever make you feel sad

Oh is this the real thing?

Are you like me do you lie awake thinking

Oh is this the real thing?



It's the job of the young to collect doubts

Afraid of our parents and preparing to freak them out

You were my lifetime lover ghost back then



Don't it ever make you feel sad

Oh is this the real thing?

Are you like me do you lie awake thinking

Oh is this the real thing?



You said you were fine

You said you were fine

You said you were fine

You said you were fine



Don't it ever make you feel sad

Oh is this the real thing?

Are you like me do you lie awake thinking

Oh is this the real thing?



Don't it ever make you feel sad

Oh is this the real thing?

Are you like me do you lie awake thinking

Oh is this the real thing?
