Before you were famous, on the night’s that we met
On the red eye from Vegas, I’ll never forget
The whole world was sleeping
And you’re searching for me…

Gave me your life story, you already knew mine
Destined for glory, but all in due time
Secrets your keeping
Oh what could you hide

City lights glow, a view from the stars
Like constellations below
The world was ours
But you and I know
I’ve gotta let you go
‘Cause your better…off…in his arms
In his arms

On your inner right thigh, an Orion tattoo
One written in Thai saying, “I love you”
A lonely lyric just
Searching for a tune

It’s all so sublime, it’s all so surreal
Just a matter of time before the truth is revealed
Shake my melted ice
Tryin to look smooth


This big bird lands
It’s outta my hands
You’re better off in his arms
This big bird lands
It’s outta my hands
You’re better off in his arms
