Athlete - The Getaway Lyrics




I never really know who you are
You could be a ghost for all I know
whenever you're home
Picking up pieces of my heart
Like leaves that have fallen on our garden path

Who's gonna fly your plane
When you need to make your getaway?

But I'm still holding on
Calling you back home, calling you back

I never really know who you are
You could be a ghost for all I know
whenever you're home
Used to be closer than my skin
Turned a blind eye to the odds and I bet everything

Who's gonna fly your plane
When you need to make your getaway?

But I'm still holding on
Calling you back home, calling you back
You hear my flesh and my bones
They're calling you back home, they're calling you back

This house lives in silence for most of the year
You're a million miles away but you couldn't be nearer
Please break my heart just so I can feel
At least I would have something that I could believe

But I'm still holding on
Calling you back home, calling you back
You hear my flesh and my bones
They're calling you back home, they're calling you back

OH OH OH

  20. Dick Head

    One of my favourite bands, listening to Athlete several times per week. Amazing voice. If you've heard him live you'd know his voice sounds just like his album versions which is a real talent!

    Jô Lopes Gomes

    Dick Head tottally agree.

  21. Asmongold Bosses

    Wait, this is Athlete? Sounds so different

  22. Allan Thompson

    @salazarlp
    I could'nt agree more its a wonderful line. I saw Athlete live at the Lowry, Salford, on 13/07/11 and they did an acoustic version of this song as part of their set, and it was truely amazing.

  23. HoKe Happy Donkey

    One of my favourite Athlete tracks. Please come back to NZ!

  24. number1Tango

    anyone notice they changed the song?? there used to be a fast part in the beginning around :54

    My favorite line: "Please break my heart just so I can feel." Tugs at my heart string every time I hear it!

  26. TMTVofficial

    great song and only 4,422 views :(

  27. CHUPACHIEP

    @tommixoft The audio quality of this video is just painful =s.

  28. TmX

    @BBQPeanut VEVO is great. Why? Cause there is many clips that you can not find in decent quality, and here you go VEVO always have good quality videos or the ones who is banned in youtube to watch in some countries, in VEVO those clips are not banned. The speed was terrible some time ago, but now even the loading speed is normal.

  29. BBQPeanut

    Because no one likes Vevo.

  30. Joel Ingalaturre Rosés

    Great song!!! I can't believe there's no comments so far!
