Lyrics

There’s so much to forget, misplace / between the monkey and the ass
The nights we slept on sheets of glass / until you called it over
But I’ll remember the perfume
The ceremony in your room
When we were young as lovers

And I know
It will never be the same / it will never wash away
Like the button on your coat
I’ll think of you
When the working day is through
When the noise turns into night / I will be alright
I’ll think of you

And if they ask me / how does the story go?
I wouldn’t know / I read the book but all I heard was music


Everybody knows this face / will not be used to launch the ship
But I’ll be here if you should slip / and I will catch you
So don’t forget your trail of crumbs / at least until the morning comes
So that I can find you

Don’t look back
Bring your flashlight and your drum / play it ‘til your hands are numb
Your twisted cane, your cardboard wings
All those things
That light you up and keep you young / the righteous heart, the open kiss
All the things that I will miss
Will follow you

And if they ask me / how does the story go?
I wouldn’t know / I read the book but all I heard was music

And I know
It will never be the same / it will never wash away
Like the button on your coat
I’ll think of you
When the working day is through
When the noise turns into night / I will be alright
I’ll think of you
