Vegas

This song is by Sara Bareilles and appears on the album Little Voice (2007) and on the live EP Live from the Gravity Tour (2009).

Gonna sell my car and go to Vegas
'Cause somebody told me
That's where dreams would be
Gonna sell my car and go to Vegas
Finally see my name upon the Palace marquis

Gonna quit my job and move to New York
'Cause somebody told me that's where
Dreamers should go
Gonna quit my job and move to New York
And tattoo my body with every Broadway show

Listen up now, honey, you're gonna be sorry
Can't get out from under a sky that is falling
And you say
"No fame, no money, I'm nobody
The way I'm running has sure got me down
On my knees
But next stop, Vegas please."
Gotta get to Vegas
Can you take me to Vegas?

Gonna sell my house and cross the border
'Cause somebody told me dreams live in Mexico
Gonna sell my house I got to lose ten pounds
And cross the border
And make sweet love upon the white sandy shore

Listen up now, honey, you're gonna be sorry
Can't get out from under a sky that is falling
And you say
"No fame, no money, I'm nobody
The way I'm running has sure got me down
On my knees
But next stop, Vegas please."

It's always just around the corner, or you're
On your way to somewhere
That is bigger, or better
If you could only get there
It's never your fault you can't start your
Own winning streak
But I'd hate to lose you to the fortune you seek

I'm gonna lose my mind and sail the ocean
'Cause somebody told me there were
Cherry blue skies
I'm gonna fix my mind with a final destination
And have a deep sleep upon a sweet dream
I'll never realize, no

Listen up now, honey, you're gonna be sorry
Can't get out from under a sky that is falling
And you say
"No fame, no money, I'm nobody
The way I'm running has sure got me down
On my knees.
Next stop, Vegas please."
Can you take me to Vegas?
