lyrics

You
you burn me down
like that old house
you burn me down
to the ground

I
I tumble slow
like all the cards
that ever stacked
I fall apart

You can't run away it seems
from what goes flying through your dreams
and memories you long neglected
come upon you unexpected
and tired I search for the hand
to have and hold at my demand
but she is nowhere to be seen and I'm lost

You
you ran me down
as on a plain
were I the prey
you ran me down

We
We fade light like
into the evening
we fade like light
tonight

I can't follow you my dear
into that void that we both fear
where silence is the balance held
and though you cry you make no sound
oh I'll go first while fast asleep,
tow away with all the years
and find a place to wait for you to come
