The air is bruised
With ghostly fumes
Of condensed smoke
But in my interpretation
The world's not moved
She sleeps tonight
The harvest breeze will refrain her lullaby
I walk solo tonight
Witnessing this moving painting

Still I'm the only soul moving
The only distracted child
Still I'd rather be
The one last sleeping
The one to hear her sigh

The trash cans are still on the curb
Enlisted soldiers awaiting departure
Still no lights reflect dawns intellect
She speaks with silence
I've understood every word

Are you with me tonight
Witnessing this moving painting?

Still I'm the only soul moving
The only distracted child
Still I'd rather be
The one last sleeping
the one to hear her sigh

Are you with me tonight
Witnessing this moving painting?

Still I'm the only soul moving
The only distracted child
Still I'd rather be
The one last sleeping
The one to hear her sigh

Still I'm the only soul moving
The only distracted child
Still I'd rather be
The one last sleeping
The one to hear her sigh

    General Commenti love this song, dearly.

    me and my dudes went to their show one night and they filmed the video there for this song.

    fuckin' incredible. and there's a shot of me dropping a fat chick crowd surfing.

    one of the greatest moments of my life.

    General CommentThe guitar around 'Are you with me tonight' is almost exactly like the one on Movielifes This Time Next Year. Homage maybe?
