Parades Go By
   ------The Magnetic Fields

I'll linger here
Your ring upon my finger, dear
And sing till dawn
A song of you and me and what and why
For time is all I have to keep
Between these walls and half asleep

The days go by
A million little nights and
Days go by
And I don't mind

Parades go by
So many beautiful parades go by
Leave me behind

I'll sit and stare
How could I venture anywhere
And let the centuries fall where they may but never die
For I have loved
And so I lost the world above
Beyond the moss

The days go by
A million little nights and
Days go by
And I don't mind

Parades go by
So many beautiful parades go by
Leave me behind

The days go by
And I don't mind
Parades go by
Leave me behind
