  • Open Sesame (we've places to go)
    We've people to see (let's put 'em on hold)
    There's all sorts of shapes, that I bet you can make
    When you want to escape, say the word

    Well, I know that getting you alone isn't easy to do
    With the exception of you I dislike everyone in the room
    And I don't wanna lie, but I don't wanna tell you the truth
    Get the sense that you're on the move
    And you'll probably be leaving soon, so I'm telling you

    Stop the world 'cause I wanna
    Get off, with you
    Stop the world 'cause I wanna
    Get off, with you

    Eyes the color of (water left in mud)
    Icing sugar dust (crazy green flashes)
    It's a funny thing, that I cannot explain
    Don't you know the train keeps a-rolling?

    Stop the world cause I wanna
    Get off, with you
    Stop the world cause I wanna
    Get off, with you

    Well, I know that getting you alone isn't easy to do
    And I don't wanna lie, and I don't wanna tell you the truth
    And I know we got places to go, we got people to see
    Think we both oughta put 'em on hold and I know you agree

    Stop the world 'cause I wanna
    Get off, with you
    Stop the world 'cause I wanna
    Get off, with you Writer/s: Alex Turner
