stars fell to the ground when they tore the hotel down
where he and i, he and i used to go
under a moon like electric snow
a decade ago

and it was there i confess that we first had a bed to share
with a view of the runway and the airport road
and we'd ride our bikes to the fence before the lights
and watch the planes come

won't you say, won't you say you're all mine?
we'll be together 'til they call us old timers
and we'll ride our bikes to the fence before the lights
and take off on an airliner

young with a fuel that could burn through any rule
and never mind, never mind what the others said
the man at the desk with the eyes of lead
bloodshot red

winter came and it became less of a game
and more of what couldn't be taught by teachers in school
and we found in love that the world was cruel
and beautiful

won't you say, won't you say you're all mine?
we'll be together 'til they call us old timers
and we'll ride our bikes to the fence before the lights
and take off on an airliner

he went to the lake that summer with his family
and a storm came overhead and struck a tree
and it emptied his mind of everything
everything even me

and when he awoke he was gone, he wasn't there
and they took him where they said he'd get better care
and i would go and visit him there
in the white square

there is a wall that's holding back the past
and all of love's history is behind the glass
there's a place where everything will last
iron cast

won't you say, won't you say you're all mine?
we'll be together 'til they call us old timers
and we'll ride our bikes to the fence before the lights
and take off on an airliner
