Let’s go out together

I see you walk a fine line: I like the lines I see
I grab you from the pavement gang, and you escape with me
we’re running down the road, we’re smiling with relief
I tell you what my name is - like your grin, white teeth

Make sure we’re clear of danger - let’s go into a bar
sit and talk, try to find out more of who we are
I think I could grow old with you, our humour is the same
we could ignore conventions, or you could change your name

When greedy corporations have sold 8 billion dreams
the solar flares have come to find us,
and we start to hear the screams -

Let’s go out together, form a chemical bond
Bouncing off each other, into the wild beyond
Laughing fit to burst, at what tickles us to death
Touch and move in harmony, as if our final breath

You wouldn't stand much chance with the pavement gang. Try me. There will be magic sparks at the end

Yes please! I could do with a good laugh, but above all I could do with some TLC.X

Yes, I would like to be rescued by the pavement gang. I live in hope!
