lyrics

Do you remember how we met in the depths
The morning mist always rose
Oh I remember how we sang and we danced
The night held its head in its hands

The stage was set
To make fools of lovers
Tyrants of thinkers yet

Do you remember the white lines of the road
Heading somewhere nobody knows
Oh I remember when you said do you doubt
Would you have the strength to let go

The stage was set
To make fools of lovers
Stories half told, half met

Do you remember the nightingale's flight
Its song took the night unawares
Oh I remember how the songbird declined
To lend us a sign in the dark

The stage was set
To make fools of lovers
Tyrants of thinkers yet

Do you remember when the sky hammered down
The morning hung heavy as a storm
Yes I remember how we clawed in the dark
The warmth of a spark lifting away

The stage was set
To make fools of lovers
Stories half told, half met
