april showers bring the mayflies
collecting round the porch light
echoing the twilight
another day will dawn here
this city sleeps in silence
the writings on the wall
the distance between streetlights
I don't know where you are
or how you sleep at night
if you can sleep at all
under this quiet sky
intense anticipation cuts this deaf calm like a razor blade
and no one seems to notice
no one seems to notice

something is near
approaches children sleeping
a light upon these delicate eyes
with our ears against the ground
because the war is in our minds
the sun and moon are trading places
and no one seems to notice
we've only a few moments
before the world will end

I don't know where you are
or how you sleep at night
if you can sleep at all
under this quiet sky
we've only a few moments
before the world will end
and no one seems to notice
no one seems to notice
and when I think of you I still have regrets
the things we never said
the things we never did
If I could change the past then the things I said
I'd have said them more
I would have said it more
I love you
