Daring Daylight Escape

This song is by Caedmon's Call and appears on the album 40 Acres (1999) and on the album The Guild Collection, Volume 3 (2000).

I've got my mind made up
I've got to love you or leave you fast
'Cause I've been thinking clear
And I don't know how long it'll last

Just like Uri Gellar
I'm bound to twist the facts around
I've got to get them straight
Before my baby up and leaves town

'Cause I can't walk on water
And if I chase you, I might drown
And I'm already up to my neck

If I may pose a question, it'll only take a second
'Cause I know that it's getting late
And depending on your answer I might have to pack
And make a daring daylight escape
Because it's either high time to make you mine
Or I swear it's time to get outta town
So please say "yes" quick, 'cause the sun's going down

Yeah, well, London's nice
But it's the last place you wanna go
But there's no crime and
You can catch a Broadway show

'Cause it's just so far
And it's bound to get a hold on you
And I've got front page headlines
Pulled right outta yesterday's news

You can read all about it
About boy meets girl and then
Screws the whole thing up
Just like always

If I may pose a question, it'll only take a second
'Cause I know that it's getting late
And depending on your answer I might have to pack
And make a daring daylight escape
Because it's either high time to make you mine
Or I swear it's time to get outta town
So please say "yes" quick, 'cause the sun's going down

It's no crime to love you
And my heart's still doing time
It's acting on its best behavior

If I may pose a question, it'll only take a second
'Cause I know that it's getting late
And depending on your answer I might have to pack
And make a daring daylight escape
Because it's either high time to make you mine
Or I swear it's time to get outta town
So please say "yes" quick, 'cause the sun's going down
