lyrics

The last crop drowned in the first strong snow
Is it winter yet? I can take the cold
With a coat so warm and a mask of steel
I'll reflect on you how you make me feel
The old man said this would have to stop
I was in your head and forgot the clock
But this morning came, now you're in my brain
I'm so stuck on you that every thought's the same

Last night I dreamed a future
Where we both would fly through space
It was so long before we woke,
But still your face had hardly aged
And I think I know why

Every moonrise reflects sunlight
(Brings all this love in tune)
Morning shifts to afternoon
Month to month, a crucial constant
Dreams in check, moments unmoved

Why should you care 'cause you know we're dying?
Take a shot, this is still worth trying
Changing your eyes in your own reflection
What are you? Not a mirror entrance
Time's just a word that you could believe in
I'll remind you that path's worth leaving
All of your hopes, every aspiration
Write them down, don't let this replace them

Let's go back home
I'll take you at face and let your words fill in the rest
Dream of snow
For soon comes the winter
I know how you like that streetlight glow

I was the one in the rain and cold
With the worthless words and the tales untold
Now in the night I can finally see
With a mirror mask and a streetlight gleam
