Lyrics:

PARTNERS IN CRIME
By Daniel Brennan

(VERSE)
I think I've been buried alive,
Stuck in a cubicle from nine to five
I'm tempted to disappear,
And take you as my souvenir

If you would be my Queen of Hearts,
I'd turn in my other cards
I'd rather quit while I'm still ahead,
And cash in my chips before I'm dead

(CHORUS)
If you take the time, I'll find the money
Let's sail away to someplace sunny
Start anew and leave all our troubles behind
Set your sights on a bright horizon
We'll chart a course for a secret island
You and me, baby, let's be partners in crime

(VERSE)
I worked hard for my degree,
But it didn't work for me
My diploma is a paper plane,
And I'm the name stuck in the frame

Jettison anti-depressants,
And the pain they fail to lessen
If you really want to beat the blues,
You've got to outrun the evening news

(CHORUS)
If you take the time, I'll find the money
Let's sail away to someplace sunny
Start anew and leave all our troubles behind
Set your sights on a bright horizon
We'll chart a course for a secret island
You and me, baby, let's be partners in crime

(GUITAR SOLO)

(VERSE)
I've got my head up in the clouds,
And my feet firmly on the ground
I'm being torn between two things:
Dreaming big and living sensibly

Unwrap the present,
Don't waste your life planning how to spend it
Break from the script
Cut your puppet strings and empty your bucket list

(CHORUS)
If you take the time, I'll find the money
Let's sail away to someplace sunny
Start anew and leave all our troubles behind
Set your sights on a bright horizon
We'll chart a course for a secret island
You and me, baby, let's be partners in crime
You and me, baby, let's be partners in crime
You and me, baby, let's be partners in crime
