Lyrics

Whiskey and water
Some wine in a glass
Come in out of the daylight
And live in the past

An old voice from the jukebox
Whispers in my ear
This old place ain't much different
From when we were last here
It's still one of my favorite years

I'm all about second chances
But for the life of me, I just can't see
What you think you'll accomplish
By talkin' to me

The water under our bridge
Has long since gone to sea
I haven't missed you in years
And you don't hate me
And that's just, the way it should be

If I could have known then, all these things I know now
I could have asked you to stay, I would have known how
But you did what you did, and I've done what I've done
And there ain't no callbacks, for hearts on the run
Hearts on the run

We were too young
And I was too wild
You'd seen more than me
but you were still half a child

We both were so fragile
Yeah we'd both been harmed
So we tried to hide out
In each other's arms
yeah we both took shelter, in each other's arms

It was just temporary
Like most things we'd known
Still we were determined,
To make a place of our own
"Just for now...", "Just for now" was still better, than being alone

If I could have known then, all these things I know now
I could have asked you to stay, I would have known how
But you did what you did, and I've done what I've done
And there ain't no callbacks, for hearts on the run
Hearts on the run

And now here we are
With our whiskey and wine
And nothing in common
But that far away time

It's now twenty years gone
Twenty years in the past
And we're both well recovered
From the shock of the blast

So I'll find you a smile
And you'll take my hand
And we'll dance our last waltz
As they strike up the band
Then we'll say, our last goodbye knowing, that we both understand

If I could have known then, all these things I know now
I could have asked you to stay, I would have known how
But you did what you did, and I've done what I've done
And there ain't no callbacks,
No there ain't no callbacks,
For hearts on the run
Hearts on the run
No more hearts on the run
