Oh you and I, we sure can dream
Of conversations that might have been
I know that I treat you unkind
And long ago I lost my mind
And even after all these years
Though I can't even see you clear
I know it's you
Must lie sometimes
To hide the truth
You're trying to find
Oh I shut us down
No I will stay around
As long as I can
As long as I can

Even after all these years
I can't even see you clear
A child is born
Another dies
And every life has its price
No I shut us down
No I will stay around
As long as I can
As long as I can

Oh I shut us down
No I will stay around
As long as I can
As long as I can
As long as I can
As long as I can
As long as I can
As long as I can
