lyrics

Wish Us Well
 
The purple sand of time
Slips slowly through our fingers
And hiss beneath our feet
We walk upon the embers
We've finally found that field
Of grass that's always greener
Careful what you say
Careful what you wish for
 
The shimmer of our sea
Blinded by the sun
The unattainable horizon
Of things I haven't done
The wind of highest hopes
Blows away mistakes
You're taking what it gives
I'm hiding what it takes
 
Dark waves of our nights
Illuminated faces
Every tear or smile
Leaves its line of traces
The celestial performance
Comes and goes so soon
What's lost beneath The Sun
Is found behind The Moon
What's lost beneath The Sun
Is found behind The Moon
 
Last Day On The Moon
 
In the curdled silence of December
We speak the words we won't remember
The eclipse of lips will stop to linger
No lunar dust between our fingers
Two lines of footprints on the surface
Will question scientists – who was this?
We'll hide the embers of our fire
In the deepest crater of desire
 
No stars above, no waves below
Our moves will never be so slow
Their telescopes will stop to follow
The dark side will stay lost in sorrow
Before our glances stop to glow
And disillusion starts forgetting
On the highest cliff by the lunar sea
We'll sit and watch – The Earth is setting
We'll sit and watch – The Earth is setting
The Earth is setting
We speak the words we won't remember
We speak the words we won't remember
We speak the words we won't remember
We speak the words we won't remember
We Let Us Linger
 
We walk through years
Together
We try to make it last forever
We share our lies
To make the things seem better
We try to make it last forever
 
Let's take our time
And take our time
Time and time again
Let's take our time
And take our time
Time and time again
 
We play disguise
But so afraid to lose each other
Confusing one another
Pretending satisfied
With what we've said and done
And ask for nothing in return
Let's take our time
And take our time
Time and time again
Let's take our time
And take our time
Time and time again
Let's take our time
And take our time
Time and time again
Let's take our time
And take our time
Time and time again
