Though I used to think marriage was a dreamer’s religion
My heart is dancing like a string of cans
So if you accept and if you can spare me a lifetime
We can hold forever in our hands
Cause you can’t rely on someone else

In a million hours
Will the love song fade into silence?
Will the tears of rapture dry away?
Though I have no doubt that you are my once in a lifeline
In between the black and white is grey
In some things you don’t have a second chance

Once upon a time
Vows were spoken never broken
People say that never happens
Though I know you’re mine
Who can say that time won’t change us
People say we’ll never be the same

There have been some times
When the effort shadowed the comfort
And I felt like throwing it away
But despite those burning eyes
And despite the words that we tortured
I never had a single lonely day
You can’t rely on someone else
