lyrics

You say there’s nothing between you and the street
Just the air, and a window, then forty little feet
And you turn and you laugh the way that I like
Wild and crazy and free
And just at that moment I would never betray you
And you would never betray me

Down below in the streets the shadows are stealing
Every sad thing they can see
And I want so badly, just one more time,
For the shadows to take you and take me
And just at that moment, I would never tell you
What a fool I turned out to be

Let’s stand at the window
Naked as when we were born
Turn out the lights
And wait for the night to come
We’ll let the shadows erase
Every name, every face
When the Devil comes looking for us
In this place
Well let’s just hope that true love,
True love leaves no traces

Your eyes they light up like streetlights
In the better part of town
But I hold a brick in my hand
I can only look down at the ground
A ground that’s shattered and covered in pieces
Of the sky falling all around

Let’s stand at the window
Naked as when we were born
Turn out the lights
And wait for the night to come
We’ll let the shadows erase
Every name, every face
When the Devil comes looking for us
In this place
Well let’s just hope that true love,
True love leaves no traces
