Raise a glass and have a toast for our lives,
But just don't stop at one.
Dressed in our finest with our rosy cheeks aglow.
We face the dying sun.
All as one we
Breathe

So the days were long and the nights were bad
Time erased the dreams we had
Still we played on till the curtain call

There is a thief who's in the yard
And he's stealing from the dogs
There is a dog that's fast asleep upon my feathered bed
There is a girl that finds it hard
To stop laying down and giving
There are some rules but no one knows
Just where we left them

The world is in my head
The world is in my heart
My head and my heart are in the world
Don't ask us to wait
No we don't have time for that
We can't be held
Below the speed of light
Oh no don't as us to wait
Our time is running fast
Not one second wasted will come back.

And the days were long and the nights were bad
Time erased the dreams we had
Still we played on till the curtain call.

And the days were long and the nights were bad
Time erased the dreams we had
Still we played on till the curtain call.

And the days were long and the nights were bad
Time erased the dreams we had
Still we played on till the curtain call.
