  • Savin' up, now we're back in love city
    Savin' up, now we're back in love city
    Savin' up, now we're back in love city
    Now we're back in love city

    It's written in the stars and our cars have all been keyed
    If you don't speak the language, it's impossible to read
    Our destiny is waiting and our fate is on the phone
    Saying, "don't forget your papers for the satisfaction zone"
    Can't find the truth if you don't know where it grows
    It's as rare as real pleasure and celebrities at shows
    There are things I've never told you 'cause I haven't got the guts
    But I hope it doesn't matter

    Ready now, ready now
    The world knows I'm in love with you
    Ready now, oh

    We can't buy love 'cause we spent it all on you
    We can't buy love 'cause we spent it all on you
    We can't buy love 'cause we spent it all on you
    We can't buy love

    So we're savin' up, now we're back in love city
    Savin' up, now we're back in love city
    Savin' up, now we're back in love city

    I drink to drown my sorrows but they always learn to swim
    Thank you very much, yes, I am a little thin
    When I exorcise my demons, I just take 'em to the gym
    But I hope it doesn't matter
    Seven years sober, couldn't give you up for lent
    So I never even questioned if your cookies had consent
    I acted on an urge, now I sit here and lament
    But I hoped it wouldn't matter

    Ready now, ready now
    The world knows I'm in love with you
    Ready now, oh

    We can't buy love 'cause we spent it all on you
    We can't buy love 'cause we spent it all on you
    We can't buy love 'cause we spent it all on you
    We can't buy love

    So we're savin' up, now we're back in love city
    Savin' up, now we're back in love city
    Savin' up, now we're back in love city

    We can't buy love 'cause we spent it all on you
    We can't buy love 'cause we spent it all on you
    We can't buy love 'cause we spent it all on you
    We can't buy love

    So we're savin' up, now we're back in love city
    Savin' up, now we're back in love city
    Savin' up, now we're back in love city
    Savin' up, now we're back in love city
    Savin' up, now we're back in love city
    Savin' up, now we're back in love city
