lyrics

The Last Event

Later on
When we've all come down
And the streets are just a funeral
And the last event
Is falling ash and embers
We'll drift and waltz and twist into nothing
We weren't too bright my love, but
weren't we something?

Heroes waved
From rented black sedans
Monsters crept behind tall buildings
And we smiled and cheered
Like nothing ever ended
We were so beautiful we forgot we were human
In dusk and fear amen
we found our undoing

Don't say it comes as any shock
Things just go and go and go until they stop
I'll always remember you as a song with no end
Here until...

Early May
She was standing in the front yard
The sun was perfect, the clouds gone missing
And I couldn't move
That's when she started crying
It felt so quick and yet somehow in slow motion
We're all just boats that sink while falling in love
with the ocean

Don't say it comes as any shock
Things just go and go and go until they stop
I'll always remember you as a song with no end
Here until...

The last event

Don't say it comes as any shock
Things just go and go and go until they stop
I'll always remember you as a song with no end
Here until...

The last event
