I don't know you, but I wish I did
I'd take back the things I haven't yet said
Learn your name, your melody
I can wait if you'll just teach me to sing

It's a daring escape
It's a daring escape from here

Know how to plan my day, but I haven't yet
We could spend it all on places not yet met
Slip away, but with no sound
Without a word to our good senses
Pay no mind to these walls
We'll learn to love without defenses

It's a daring escape
It's a daring escape from here

Maybe this is all mistake
Or much too soon to take our chances
Maybe this is another love and lose in my advances
The curse of all - it shakes my bones
That we'd miss out on what is good
I'm scared enough, but not enough
To give in to what is misunderstood

Oh and you've got your plans
And I've got mine
The words we need the most
They never seem to come to mind
You wonder of the worth of what you'll find
In an escape
A daring escape
From here
