  • The water won't boil think I've been staring too long
    This house is on fire and I don't want to get out of my bed
    Get out of my bed
    The streets of this town are cracked and crumbling now
    Been tripping for miles and I don't want to go home to what's left
    So tell me what's left

    I want to be the driver of your getaway car
    Stash the paper bag at the back of the bar
    Smile through the pain and run away from your past
    Leave the handgun
    Take the cash

    Ooh, can we make an honest woman out of Lucy
    Ooh, gotta make an honest woman out of Lucy

    Sharpen your mouth let words come tumbling out
    Stare into space 'til silence breaks through the crowd
    Oh, what's next was it something she said
    Tighten that grip on heaven just to hold on
    No, you don't care what it's just been too fucking long
    Since they said take whatever's left

    So tell me about a world that ran away with your heart
    Pulled apart your ribs and left you broken and scarred
    Smile through the pain and run away from your past
    Leave the handgun
    Take the cash

    Ooh, can we make an honest woman out of Lucy
    Ooh, gotta make an honest woman out of Lucy

    Leave the handgun
    Take the cash

    Hiding out at a lonely diner
    Still awake from the night before
    So afraid of the past behind you
    Lay low from the uniform
    Back lot with the blue lights flashing
    Radio in a 914
    Find yourself on the concrete gasping
    Staring up at a uniform

    Ooh, can we make an honest woman out of Lucy
    Ooh, gotta make an honest woman out of Lucy Writer/s: Alexander Gaskarth, Mark Hoppus, Zakk Cervini
