Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness - Maps For The Getaway Lyrics




Parked outside the house we used to live
There's a light left on inside
Think of all the days we'd spend
Orchestrating accidents
Lights that used to blind us
Somehow they will guide us through the night

Following the outline of your face
I can see your breath move in the dark
Through all the autopilot years
The tears of joy, the face of fear
Now that we're not hiding
Somehow you're still riding in my car

No cash in the bank, no paid holidays
All we have, all we have is
Gas in the tank, maps for the getaway
All we have, all we have is time

Parked outside the house we used to live
Staring down the green roof and the walls
The balcony, the hills, the pain
The years of hope, the months of rain
Now that we're outside it, I guess we survived it after all

No cash in the bank, no paid holidays
All we have, all we have is
Gas in the tank, maps for the getaway
All we have, all we have is time

All we have is time
All we have is time

No white picket fence, no job with the government
All we have, all we have are
Mornings in bed, coffee and aspirin
All we have

No cash in the bank, no sign of yesterday
All we have, all we have is
Gas in the tank, maps for the getaway
All we have, all we have is time

All we have is time
All we have is time
All we have is time

  20. Sara Campbell

    I can't get over this song. The last song of his that I felt this way about was there there Katie. I can't believe I'm saying this but this album is his best to date. Wonderful wonderful man.

    fuzzylittlemanpeach

    +Sara Campbell it's MIND BLOWING. SO good. I've been listening to it on repeat. So crazy to think Something Corporate was so long ago and here he is now.

    Sara Campbell

    +cuddlebeans I know!!! This song kind of reminds me to look back in time. Times of Soco and all those teenage years where everything felt so hopeless. Like he was speaking directly to me. Now I'm a mother of two and those days seem so far away but at the same time I look back on it with nostalgia. Have you ever heard Dear Jack or There There Katie? He has a documentary of his battle with cancer called Dear Jack on Netflix.
