And I'll be singing 'till I'm old and out of tune
Until this world is through with you
'till I can't stand up and I'm stuck in bed
'till my neck gives out from underneath my head
Snow falls down in the middle of July, now
We've been waiting such a long time
For you to find time,
Find the strength to let me go,
Don’t let me go,
Don’t let me go,
Don’t let me go

We used to paint such pretty pictures,
Used to dress this town in gold,
Used to stare into my eyes and swear
We’re never growing old and tired of this place we call our home
And all we have is these nights we spent alone

And I'll be singing 'till I'm old and out of tune
Until this world is through with you
'till I can't stand up and I'm stuck in bed
'till my neck gives out from underneath my head
Snow falls down in the middle of July, now
We've been waiting such a long time
For you to find time,
Find the strength to let me go,
Don’t let me go,
Don’t let me go,
Don’t let me go

When they finally find the cure,
I'll be first in line
You know that every step you take
I'll be but one behind
We can climb this wall
And dust this off our shoulders

'Cause now we're old and tired of this place we call our home
And all we have are these nights we spend alone

Old and out of tune
Oh, until this world is through with you
'till I can't stand up and I'm stuck in bed
'till my neck gives out from underneath my head
Snow falls down in the middle of July now,
We've been waiting such a long time,
For you to find time,
Find the strength to let me go,
Don’t let me go,
Don't let me go

    General CommentThis is another beautiful song. I think it's about a couple who feel out of place when they're older and wish they could be young again, but now their hometown is boring to them and all they want to do is have an adventure, like they did when they were young... but how they'll work through it together and he'll be with her always.
