Smile at me for I can't read your mind
And your eyes leave too much still unsaid
This moment must be correctly met
Else we'll live in constant regret
I know you hold a torch for another
So let's revel under its yearning light

And if you leave me now then we'll never know
There'll always be a question in your eye
A silence of remembrance or penitence
Your glance broken too late to tell the lie
Of a trust never even tried

We'll move around this wavering torch
Fleeting promises to keep love out of sight
Laugh at the futility of these thoughts
Nothing can stop us being burned again
We are the bearers of many old flames
Let's use them to guide us to bed before they wane

And if you leave me then now we'll never know
There'll always be a question in your eye
A silence of remembrance or penitence
Your glance broken too late to tell the lie
Of a trust never even tried

We can mourn and miss them all we like
But it's so unlikely that they'll return
There's always too much said and not undone
To walk those halcyon paths once again
It's simpler just to take my hand in yours
And we'll make those mistakes again
