Foreign Ground

from Like Clockwork by Color Theory



A Eurorail pass and the clothes on your back are all you’ve got
You said you need a chance to live life for yourself
Away with your friends
Prying and criticizing me
When it comes to relationships you don’t need any help

It tears me up
The way you ran away
The things that people say
How I wish you
Never had set foot on foreign ground
Your friends don’t understand
The customs of our land
How I wish they
Never had set foot on foreign ground

How can they claim to know what it’s like when we’re alone?
I understand sometimes you need a way to vent
But they are all oceans away from knowing us
Every relationship is a private continent

You make me happy and that’s all I need to know
I don’t need permission from a judge and jury
Our love is one thing you can’t say instead of show
To hell with all doubters in the world

You and I share our own special form of government
A balance of power
A democracy of two
Don’t give away the right to control our destiny
It should just be one vote for me and one for you.
