lyrics

it was a Middle Tennessee Summer
it was 102 degrees
we had everywhere to go
and nowhere to be

and there's a million ways for people
to get to where they go
some like a ladder
we prefer a road

let's get out of here while we still can
let's get out of here while we're still alive
let's burn, burn, burn like Roman Candles in the sky
into the American Night

it was a Middle Tennessee Night
it was a quarter after two
I decided I just won't sleep
there's better things to do

the Earth was still and the Night was quiet
and I lay in the dew
but this can't last forever
because September will catch us soon

let's get out of here while we still can
let's get out of here while we're still alive
let's burn, burn, burn like Roman Candles in the sky
into the American Night

and I still remember the time we said
we could pack our things and head out West
sleep under the stars and change our names
like Wild Bill and Calamity Jane
dodging the law and robbing trains
and no two days could be the same
live like outlaws, never to be tames

let's get out of here while we still can
let's get out of here while we're still alive
let's burn, burn, burn like Roman Candles in the sky
into the American Night
