  • We played games in the park
    And I want to stay there
    Close to your heart
    And you said "Oh, I can feel your heart beat,"
    And I told you, "Sometimes when I stay the night, I find it hard, hard to sleep"
    Oh, we played, yeah, like lovers in the moonlight
    We stay here, stubborn in the softness and the light
    Oh, how close to heaven can you get
    Before the sun burns your eyes?
    Oh, oh, baby
    You were like a child when you wept
    Yeah, through soul sang lullabies
    Eyes, e-e-eyes, Oh, Eyes, e-e-eyes
    We played games with the distance
    Made phone calls, phone calls just to listen
    We held, oh, mornings from the start
    You said "Baby, maybe, maybe, I never want to make your heart less"
    For now, words get lost in the dark
    For when the morning comes
    That you dropped out the start
    Oh, how close to heaven can you get
    Before the sun burns your eyes?
    Oh, oh, baby
    You were like a child when you wept
    Oh, through soul sang lullabies
    Eyes, e-e-eyes
    Yeah, how close to heaven can you get
    Before the sun burns your eyes?
    Oh, oh, mama
    You were like a child when you wept
    Oh, through soul sang lullabies
    Eyes, e-e-eyes, Oh, Eyes, e-e-eyes
    And you're under the same set of stars
    We lay there, worlds apart
    And you still say "I can feel your heart beat"
    And I still find it hard in the middle of the night, oh, trying to sleep
    Oh come, find me when the years get older, find me when the world
    Lights solder to our fire, oh, oh, no
    Find me when the years get older, find me when the world
    Lights solder to our fire
    Oh, whoa, Oh whoa, solder...
    To our fire
