I was working in this tourist store
Giving directions to the dinosaur
Handing little maps out through the window

You'd pretend to be from out of town
Like you didn't know your way around
I'd say "step into my office and i'll show you"

You'd close the blinds
Kick off your shoes
Say "god, it's good just to sit with you"
We didn't need to touch
We'd only hide
I had a bottle in the bottom drawer
We used to look out at the dinosaur
And pretend she was coming to life

We'd be like
"Oh my God, we've got to go!
There's no time for goodbyes
So grab your keys
So start your car
And let's just drive"
It was only a bit
But I still have these dreams where it happens

It was only for the summer
It was intended to be temporary
Then i blew all my savings on the volvo

You had this map of all the lakes
We drew a route in ballpoint
The plan was to get started
In the fall

And didn't the road seem so long back then?
Wasn't the landscape vast?
Didn't the lakes seem infinite and bottomless?
You sat there in that office once
Crown Royal in a coffee cup
Said "quiet now,
I'm trying to remember this"

And oh my god
It was getting so late
The sun was going down already
We thought we could
Hold it in our hands
It was only a moment
It slipped through our fingers like sand

It's a hundred and six steps
Up to the so called observation deck
I think we just went up there
That one night

As we looked out through her mouth
I was saying to myself
We got time
We got time
We got time

We got time
We got time
We got time
