  • Under a blackened sky
    Far beyond the glaring streetlights
    Sleeping on empty dreams
    The vultures lie in wait
    You lay down beside me then
    You were with me every waking hour
    So close I could feel your breath
    When all we wanted was the dream
    To have and to hold that precious little thing
    Like every generation yields
    The new born hope unjaded by their years
    Pressed up against the glass
    I found myself wanting sympathy
    But to be consumed again
    Oh I know would be the death of me
    And there is a love that's inherently given
    A kind of blindness offered to appease
    And in that light of forbidden joy
    Oh I know I won't receive it
    When all we wanted was the dream
    To have and to hold that precious little thing
    Like every generation yields
    The newborn hope unjaded by their years
    You know if I leave you now
    It doesn't mean that I love you any less
    It's just the state I'm in
    I can't be good to anyone else like this
    When all we wanted was the dream
    To have and to hold that precious little thing
    Like every generation yields
    The new born hope unjaded by their years
