Lyrics

 It seems only yesterday we stood

Beneath our moonlight getaway

There we could stay forever young

And this was the beauty of that place

But you will be leaving here at dawn

The train never comes a minute late

They'll erase all the pictures we have drawn

and coax you to forget my face


Stay inside with me

Light a candle on the windowpane so we can see

Burn our eulogy

Grab the pen and change the pages of our history


We talk about trying to kill the time

While time is slowly killing us

The next thing you know we've slipped away

Branches swept into the underbrush

One day a memory may be all we have

So let's make a mess and hope what's left will hold fast


Stay inside with me

Light a candle on the windowpane so we can see

Burn our eulogy

Grab the pen and change the pages of our history


The clocks made it clear that soon as you have gone they'll come for me

Thats just the way the rules have always been

But I've got a trick or two still up my sleeve

And I've got no intention of going quietly


Stay inside with me

Light a candle on the windowpane so we can see

Burn our eulogy

Grab the pen and change the pages of our history
