We Are Ghosts

This song is by Paper Aeroplanes and appears on the album We Are Ghosts (2011).

It's not like you're a friend of mine
But I think I know the score
Too much wine and we're thick as thieves
You steal mine and I steal yours

So let's take a train to the sea
And drink bottled beer by the beach
Just the seagulls, salt, you and me
Make believe
We are free

It's not like you could find the time
But I know you've found the thoughts
Locked away in that rock pool brain
Where those fishes can't be caught

So let's take a train to coast
And write postcards we'll never post
And catch a breeze till we float
Make believe
We are ghosts
We are ghosts

And see what we could find
And this real life you could leave behind
And just for a day we could run away and hide

It's not like you're a friend of mine
All my friends are far too close
