about

Tell me its true... the things they say about love?
Cause forever isn't something I can contemplate...

lyrics

And when we go sailing, we won't come back again

Tell me it's true, the things they say about love
He takes her to dances.
Tell me it's true, the things they say about love
She patches up his bruises,
Kisses, listens pushes.
It's an inspired old game,
making like the pictures in the window display
Dusty cabinets, Saturdays at home.

Tell me we can, the things they say about love
He sharpens my edges
Tell me we can, the things they say about love.
We used to be so reckless,
Racking up regrets.
Now we're the talk of town
Making like the pictures in the windows we hate
Love forever, into the unknown.

Tell me you're not bored, the things they say about love
She takes him for granted
Tell me you're not bored, the things they say about love
He always makes excuses,
And she says that he's useless
We're the talk of town
Making like the pictures in the window display.
Love forever, Saturdays at home
Alone, again.

And when we go sailing, we won't come back again,
Will we?
Cause diamond circles break under heavy weight.
Forever isn't something I can contemplate.
Our fates entwined.
And he keeps me afloat when the winds are low,
But lately I've been sensing a screaming storm inside.

So will you and I go hand in hand and face the tide?
And when you and I go, tell me that we won't come back again.
