I know all the names of your tears
the numbers of those lonely years
I know all the someone somedays
don't believe them anyway

when you love someone
you can't always tell the sun
it will be twilight soon
save a secret for the moon

in a darkened room
write it on a black balloon
then watch it fade from view
save a secret for the moon

I can show you sadder poetry
than you ever dreamed there could be
I know all the saddest people
most of them are dead now

    General CommentQuite simply one of the most incredible songs I have ever had the pleasure of immersing myself in. The first 10 seconds gives me goose bumps every time.

    General Commentthis is a wonderful song. i have no idea what it's specifically about, although i think it might have to do with having to keep your love for someone a secret. get lost is such a good album, v underrated i think.
