[Verse]
'Cause we've been driving so long
I can't remember how we got here
Or how we survived
So long, I'm trying to run from my pride
'Till you step out of my atmosphere
And I remember I'd spend the 23rd feeling six feet under when I'm thirty thousand feet in the air
Chasing that sun down
So far east I'm westbound
Feeling like the edge of the world is near

[Hook]
And you'll feel better when you wake up
Swear to God I'll make up
Everything and more when I get back some day
This is more than just a face, oh
Shooting stars all break up
And even though it seems like half the world away
Things will be better in America
Heard the streets are gold there
Maybe I'll fly you out this place someday
Chasing dreams like I'm on novocaine
Screaming through your airways
Looking back I almost thought I heard you say

[Chorus]
Stay, you're not gonna leave me
This place is right where you need to be
Why do your words gotta mean so much to them?
And they mean nothing to me
So stay, you're not what you're hearing
'Cause I've been watching and changing
And who said you're one in a million, anyway?

[Verse]
'Cause you see only what you want to
Your television haunts you
You can't see what's wrong with you
You sleep sleeping through the P.M., eyes wide open when you're dreaming
You're sleepwalking, just keep talking
Maybe you can talk your way out of this deep end
No [?] in your system
Just tell me what your thinking
I'm scared you might fall
But you're not
But you're not

[Hook]
And you'll feel better when you wake up
Taking off your makeup
Starlight always seems to wash our fears away
And it's always shining somewhere
I've just got to get there
Even though it seems like half a world away
Things will be better in America
Heard the streets are gold there
Maybe I'll fly you out this place someday
Chasing dreams like I'm on novocaine
Screaming through your airways
Looking back I almost thought I heard you say

[Chorus]
Stay, you're not gonna leave me
This place is right where you need to be
Why do your words gotta mean so much to them?
And they mean nothing to me
So stay, you're not what you're hearing
'Cause I've been watching and changing
And who said you're one in a million, anyway?

[Bridge]
So much better in there...
So much better in there...
So much better in there...
So much better in there...
Stay, you're not what you're hearing
Cause I've been watching and changing
Who said you're one in a million, anyway?

[Hook]
And you'll feel better when you wake up
Taking off your makeup
Starlight always seems to wash our fears away
And it's always shining somewhere
I've just got to get there
Even though it seems like half a world away
Things will be better in America
Heard the streets are gold there
Maybe I'll fly you out this place someday
Chasing dreams like I'm on novocaine
Screaming through your airways
Looking back I almost thought I heard you say
It's so much better in there
