  • Foreign names, neon lights
    Changing lanes in my mind
    Passing towns we don't know
    Heading for the unknown
    All our friends left behind
    They're not even on my mind
    They have lives, they have plans
    They could never understand

    Meet me on the motorway
    Together we can make our great escape
    Meet me on the motorway
    Maybe we can find our perfect place
    We can drive away
    We can drive away
    Meet me on the motorway
    It's just me and you
    It's just me and you

    Getting late, coffee's cold
    Heavy eyes, on the road
    We won't stop, no we won't break
    Shadows hide, overtake
    The small town we left behind
    We won't drown, we won't hide
    A new life, a new plan
    They would never understand

    Meet me on the motorway
    Together we can make our great escape
    Meet me on the motorway
    Maybe we can find our perfect place
    We can drive away
    We can drive away
    Meet me on the motorway
    It's just me and you
    It's just me and you

    We won't look back, so don't look back
    We won't look back, so don't look back
    We won't look back, so don't look back
    We won't look back, so don't look back
    We won't look back, so don't look back
    We won't look back, so don't look back
    We won't look back

    Meet me on the motorway
    Together we can make our great escape
    Meet me on the motorway
    Maybe we can find our perfect place
    We can drive away
    We can drive away
    Meet me on the motorway
    It's just me and you
    It's just me and you Writer/s: JAMES ELIOT, VICTORIA HESKETH
