This song is by Emilíana Torrini and appears on the album Tookah (2013).

Somebody let me get that far
I don't even know right now who we are
I see you standing on the stairwell, stairwell
You know that I'm leaving

Oh we used to live fast
Doing it, doing it every night
The next touch
Knowing it, knowing it

How did we let this get that far?
I don't even know right now who we are
With you my heart's in a wishing well
Promise me never break the spell

I confess, I confess
I have been tempted, tempted
I want it, I want it
Dangerous

Somebody tell me how we got that far
I don't even know right now who we are
And if you know that you're not breathing, get out
We can always just leave here, drive off

Life is just a flicker in the universe
Ooh, under the stars we're indestructible

Life is just a flicker in the universe
Ooh under the stars we're indestructible

Won't somebody let me drive that car
We'll be riding down that freeway towards it all
We'll be making love in thunderstorms
Together living in a free fall
Oh won't you come with me? We'll go far
