lyrics

Run from the empty stages, fall through the night with me.
Leave behind the empty phrases, keep your body close to me.
And if it’s for a moment, say that you love me dear.
Let’s spend a sweet sad evening, forgetting loneliness and fear.

Oh here we go again.

We wander the wet streets, we’ll be each other’s comfort.
Building a fortress against this loneliness.
And love’s been elusive right now, we’ll we’re not searching.
And morning will bring us the cold light of regretting.

Oh here we go again.

Hold me tightly, the night will steal me away on its silken wings.
Hold me tightly, this dream has fallen away, as so many things.
Hold me tightly, this night will steal me away on its silken wings.
Hold me tightly, this wind will blow me away, as the autumn leaves so frail.
