Learning How To Smile Submit Correct Lyrics

Five miles outside of Vegas when we broke down
Threw my keys inside the window and we never looked back
Got all drunk and sloppy on a Greyhound bus
We passed out, all the losers they were laughing at us

I will never let them break your heart
No I will never let them break me
We got lost in phoenix, seems like such a long time
Seven months of living sweaty on those thin white lines

Did some time for selling acid to the wrong guy
Life just keeps on getting smaller and we never ask why

Why there is no perfect place? Yes I know this is true
I'm just learning how to smile, that's not easy to do
I know there will come a day
When we can leave and just go running away

We was broke outside of Philly when the storms came
I was working in New Jersey, hitching rides in the rain
You was happy, talkin' dirty at that phone sex place
Life just keeps on getting better for us everyday

You say there is no perfect place, I say I know this is true
We're all just learning how to smile, that's not easy to do
We both live for the day when we can run away
Oh baby we can leave and run away

Yes we can leave this place and run away
We can leave it all behind like we do every time
Yes we both live for the day
When we can leave and just go running away

No I will never ever break your heart
No I will never let it break me

Five miles outside of Vegas, five years down the line
We got married in the desert and the sunshine
I can't handle how the hell it happens everyday
When you smile and touch my face you make it all just go away

Yes I know there ain't no finish line, I know there's never ends
I'm just learning how to fall and climb back up again
I know there's nothing perfect, I know there's nothing new
We all just learning how to live together, me and you
You know I live for the day when you say baby let's just run away

Oh baby we can leave and run away
Yes we can leave this place and run away
Baby we can leave and run away
We can leave this place and run away

Oh baby we can leave and run away
Yes we can leave this place and run away
We can leave this place and run away
We can leave this place and run away
