Oh, I was moved by your screen dream
Celluloid pictures living
Your death could not kill my love for you
Take two people romantic
Smoky nightclub situation
Your cigarette traces a ladder

Here's looking at you, kid
Celebrate years
Here's looking at you, kid
Wipe away tears

Long time since we're together
Now I hope it's forever
Ideal love flies away now
White jacket, black tie, wings too
You gave her away to the hero
Words don't express my meaning
Notes could not spell out the score
But finding not keeping's the lesson

Here's looking at you, kid
Hard to forget
Here's looking at you, kid
At least not yet

Your memory stays
It lingers ever
Will fade away never

    General CommentYes, agreed. This song is also really great. Thom has a great big band voice. His vocals are always amazing, no matter what. This has to be my favourite besides 'rabbit in headlights' that thom does with another band.

    beautiful. holding on to things (good or bad) in the end hurts us somehow.. i love that they said "finding, not keeping's the lesson". its so true.
