  • Ten minutes to downtown
    Is ten minutes too far?
    When my friends all say I'm crazy
    Maybe I'm being selfish
    Maybe I'm just scared

    Don't be gone when I get home, I need you there

    If I had to explain it
    I wouldn't know where to start
    It's like you're falling in love while I just fall apart

    Ten minutes to downtown
    Is ten minutes too far?
    When my heart is saying you're crazy
    Maybe things are getting better
    Maybe things aren't so bad

    Don't be gone when I get home, you're all I have

    If I had to explain it
    I wouldn't know where to start
    It's like you're falling in love while I just fall apart

    Pockets empty
    How can you tell me that everything will work out?
    A pointless fight
    When you're always right and everything will work out
    It works out

    Sometimes I miss you more
    Whenever I'm at home
    I've been home all summer
    Now I'm leaving you alone

    Pockets empty
    How can you tell me that everything will work out?
    A pointless fight
    When you're always right and everything will work out
    Everything will work out
    Everything will work out Writer/s: JAMES DEWEES, JAMES SUPTIC, MATTHEW PRYOR, ROBERT POPE, RYAN POPE
