I don't know if I can find a way to keep
All the secrets that you told me in your sleep
And I'm amazed that you still find the space to dream
In the shadows of a town made out of thieves

Who would drown the sound of history repeating
With the ambulances screaming up the street

So sing to me
Don't let me fall asleep to the sound of cold machines
Or the smell of gasoline
Or the weight of destiny

Don't make me wait
I've been waiting here all night
I've been waiting my whole life

Somewhere the ghosts of factory workers dance
With the ghosts of kids who never had a chance
And we still hear it out our window every night

    I don't know if I can find a way to keep
    All the secrets that you told me in your sleep
    And I'm amazed that you still find the space to dream
    In the shadows of a town made out of thieves

    Who would drown the sound of history repeating
    With the ambulances screaming up the street

    So sing to me
    Don't let me fall asleep to the sound of cold machines
    Or the smell of gasoline
    Or the weight of destiny

    Don't make me wait
    I've been waiting here all night
    I've been waiting my whole life

    Somewhere the ghosts of factory workers dance
    With the ghosts of kids who never had a chance
    And we still hear it out our window every night
    Like a fistfight in an ambulance

    Sing me a song, don't let me think too long
    About what I'm trying to say
    A broken fire escape
    Or how long I had to wait
