Get away from it all forever.

lyrics

skies in the marketplace
gold and blue
streaked by the jet planes
shopping on Saturdays
fresh fruit wooden stalls
friendly hellos
cheap peaches ’n’ cream
and strawberries sell out

Whisper in my ear:
“Let’s go have a beer
and plan our vacation
To the north west territories,
You and me
On the Dawson highway;
me riding shot, and
the A/C’s busted
so it’s a little too hot…”

but we don’t care
we’re on vacation out here
no we don’t care
we’re on vacation out here

fries and gravy
from the casse croute
speeding down the highway
we are in pursuit
just heading forward
nowhere in particular
maybe somewhere
we can’t go in our car

you and me
on a desert savannah
the moon and the wolf
and nothing else
this is heart beating
one between us
this is where
I found myself

‘cause we don’t care
we’re on vacation out here
