lyrics

Darling take that picture out of your pocket
It’s fading.
You say you’ll be here soon,
I’m waiting.
But you’re looking older than before.

That night the sky was falling.
I battened my eyes
And prayed for morning.
Because in the dark the world can’t see me,
Everything collapses so easily.

Constant as a heartbeat,
Certain as a rock,
In this cradle of illusion,
I’ll keep holding on.

You can have your distance,
You can take your time,
To brighten up the darkness
Behind those hazy eyes.

Time it wears our bodies down,
Raise your demons from underground.
Keep the darkness down at bay,
It’s more than mortal life can take.

You say we’re bodies in a room
And no ones willing,
But does this heart count for anything?
Tell me am I getting better?
Or am I getting used to it?

Shadows in the water,
Scared of jumping in,
A modest man’s daughter,
Not the kind you’d chance to win.

Don’t say you miss me,
Or that you want me back,
We’re all looking at the same sky,
Same expanding black.

Time it wears our bodies down,
Raise your demons from underground.
Keep the darkness down at bay,
It’s more than mortal life can take.

Hold me,
My head beneath your shoulder,
You control me,
Now I’m not scared of getting older.
Trust me,
Darling I’m not asking you to
Love me just yet.

Time it wears our bodies down,
Raise your demons from underground.
Keep the darkness down at bay,
It’s more than mortal life can take.
