Getaway 

©1990 Andrew Calhoun, recorded on Hope

Make your getaway, darling 
Ride the midnight bus 
Leave all that struggle and snarling 
Come on back to us 

I've got a homemade meal in the freezer 
Hidden way down in the back 
There's one cold beer for a teaser 
There's a cup with your name in the rack 

Hearts dance like flies in the darkness 
Feeling their way to the light 
I know you're out there somewhere 
Keeping me awake all night 

I've grown so scared of loving 
How far it all goes wrong 
Sometimes it's worth the losing 
For a chance to sing the song

Rewrite with bridge: 

Make your getaway, darling  
Ride the midnight bus  
Leave all that struggle and snarling  
come on back to us  

There's a homemade meal in the freezer  
Hidden way down in the back  
Your bed is waiting patient,
There's a cup with your name in the rack  

Make your getaway, darling   
Ride the midnight bus   
Leave all that struggle and snarling   
come on back to us  

Hearts dance like flies in the darkness  
Feeling their way to the light  
I know you're out there somewhere  
Keeping me awake all night  

bridge
Listen for the whisper, 
Of a promise holding strong
To see you through the shadow,
To keep you all night long,
We show the scars of loving
How far it all goes wrong
And know it's worth the losing  
For a chance to sing the song

Make your getaway, darling   
Ride the midnight bus   
Leave all that struggle and snarling   
come on back to us
