  • It was a hot and sultry afternoon
    Sometime at the end of June
    We had collapsed ourselves in shade somewhere
    To conclude our love affair
    But it was too damn hot to speak that much
    It felt easier to touch
    So we forgot to fall apart that day
    And the next day

    It was a cold and endless sky above
    When he decided he was through with love
    The leaves were piles of skeletons
    And he was only skin and bones
    And then he went to the bridge so he could fall
    And drop down far away from it all
    But the water looked so black and deep
    And he closed his eyes and he went to sleep
    Til the next day

    The snow fell hard from five to five
    You had to drink to stay alive
    But you were hoping it would kill you too
    At least you'd have something changing you
    Cause you were cold as the ice at your front door
    You raised a trembling glass and shouted, "Fuck the world!"
    And then you fell into oblivion
    Lying on your bed with your shoes on
    Til the next day

    Baby close your eyes until tomorrow
    It could bring joy it could bring sorrow
    But it will come sure as light
    Try not to dream a dream tonight
    Imagine that you're standing here
    And suddenly you disappear
    A thread cut with a carving knife
    That is what they call our life

    Baby close your eyes until tomorrow
    It could bring joy it could bring sorrow
    But it will come sure as light
    Try not to dream a dream tonight
    Imagine that you're standing here
    And suddenly you disappear
    A thread cut with a carving knife
    That is what they call our life
