Idlewild Century After Century Lyrics

Last updated: 12/21/2009 10:00:00 AM

Since you're breathing, is it all that a space can fill?
So just by looking in, I'll be looking still
You find and follow stories well
You're naked except for a newspaper, the headline telling me
That fortune favours the brave
I've never been known to be that brave
What I want is on its way out
All I needed was an easier way to stay

Walking around the city as the light fades (is it all that you remain?)
I'm thinking about each promise that I have ever made

I know what they will never say, I know what they will never say
Century after century they remain

And if I read to remember that the entire earth is outside this room
So close the windows, keep the curtains shut forever
And if I need to remember that the entire earth is outside this room
So close the windows, close the windows

Isn't it romantic to be romantic
When you don't understand what you love,
Or if a word like that could ever mean anything?
When what you want is on its way out
I didn't hear cheerleading for creative writers
And your cheekbones don't taste of anything at all
It's on its way out, it's just an easier way to stay

Talking about a city that the light made (is it all that you remain?)
It's the same story that's been told
But it's been stories that don't fade

I know what they will never say, I know what they will never say
Century after century they remain

Is it all that you remain?
