  • Hold tight for heartbreak
    Buckle up for loneliness
    Right time to get away
    Where I'm going I couldn't care

    I'm bored and I'm afraid
    I'm falling like rain for you
    So tired and picking skin
    Just cos it's something to do

    Bored girls and sad boys
    Dull roads to anywhere
    Bad sex and ethanol
    High scores on solitaire

    I'm numb and getting off
    Getting real numb with you
    Big plans that never come
    Holding out for something new

    Can anybody hear me?
    Is anybody out there?
    Not a soul in a streetlight
    This might be love
    This might be love

    Hold tight for heartbreak
    Buckle up for loneliness
    Right time to get away
    Where I'm going I couldn't care

    Dead dreams and dirty clothes
    Calls that are Long overdue
    Cheap highs and souvenirs
    So many knots that I'll never undo

    Can anybody hear me?
    Is anybody out there?
    Not a soul in a streetlight
    This might be love
    This might be love
    This might be love
    This might be love Writer/s: CHARLES CAVE, HARRY MCVEIGH, JACK BROWN
