  • I've been sleepwalking
    Through the railway station
    Wake me up
    When they call my destination

    Where I've been
    I was bound to leave behind
    All device and all disease was mine

    I'm speeding out of reach
    Oh, you're the one I had to meet

    I never wanted to go home
    Wanderlust will carry us on
    There was nothing there for me
    Wanderlust will carry us on
    In a high rise on my own
    I've been on the highways for so long
    Looking out in a mirrored balcony
    Wanderlust will carry us on

    Will there ever be a place for you and me?
    Wanderlust

    I'm rolling in for a seven day weekend
    Living up again to my old reputation
    Can you cover me
    'Cause I got no armor
    Keep on moving down the line
    Keep on going further

    I'm speeding out of reach
    Oh, you're the one I had to meet

    I never wanted to go home
    Wanderlust will carry us on
    There was nothing there for me
    Wanderlust will carry us on
    In a high rise on my own
    I've been on the highway for so long
    Looking out at a mirrored balcony
    Wanderlust will carry carry carry us on
    I don't know where to go now, I got nowhere to hide
    Nowhere to go, nowhere to be
    I don't know where to go now, I got nowhere to be
    Oh, wanderlust will carry us on

    Walk fifty city blocks down but they always find us
    Wanderlust will carry us on
    Will there ever be a place for you and me
    Wanderlust will carry us on
    Will there ever be a place for you and me Writer/s: Emily Haines, James Shaw
