lyrics

Whad’ya say we go out tonight
I’ll come by around sundown
And we can see what’s left of the spots
We used to frequent
I’ll bet I can fire up the range
At a restaurant downtown
And we can dig a bottle of wine
Out of their basement
Then we can dine by candlelight
Like when we first met

When the earth shook in the quake
And the buildings started to tumble down
Once I had dropped
I knew what I had to do
I made my way
Through the wreckage, fires and barricades
I wouldn’t stop
Until I was safe with you

I’ve been out there roaming the streets
In anything that’s still mobile
Drive it around ‘til it runs out of fuel
And grab another
I’ve been busy building for us
An incredible stockpile
From basic needs to luxury goods
I’ve got it covered
And soon you won’t remember the times
When it was rougher

When the earth shook in the quake
And the buildings started to tumble down
Once I had dropped
I knew what I had to do
I made my way
Through the wreckage, fires and barricades
I wouldn’t stop
Until I was safe with you

It’s a gift
We survived
To be the ones who stayed alive
Though it’s been hard
To adapt
We’ve found a strength that was untapped

But every passing day
Goes by a little bit smoother
With no one standing in our way
I can see a bright future
And the thing that gave us loads of trouble
Has finally met its end
Buried under tons of rubble
It won’t return again

Once the fires finally subside
And the smog starts to vanish
It will be blue skies every day
And perfect weather
We could get a house in the hills
Something big and outlandish
If we can find one standing intact
It’ll last forever

When the earth shook in the quake
And the buildings started to tumble down
Once I had dropped
I knew what I had to do
I made my way
Through the wreckage, fires and barricades
I wouldn’t stop
Until I was safe with you
