Joining up the black dotted lines
Drifting back in space in time
Remember how it used to be?
(she said, she said, she said, to me)
Stepping out across a railway line
Drawn to walls of moonless sky
Remember how it used to be?
(she said, she said, she said, to me)

Remember how it used to be?

Don't say there's nothin'
We can make this happen
All this time you knew

Now it always makes perfect sense
A face of innocence
Sending it all back to me
(She did, she did, she did, to me)
Watching those blue eyes turn to green
Every second, every blink
Remember how it used to be?
(she said, she said, she said)

Don't say there's nothin'
We can make this happen
All this time you knew
Don't say it's over, forgotten
We can make this happen

Swallow the words
Swallow the pain
All we've broken
All we've made
All forgiven
Always sane
(he's sane, he's sane...)

Joining up the black dotted lines
Drifting back in space in time
Remember how it used to be?

Don't say there's nothin'
We can make this happen
All this time you knew
Don't say it's over, forgotten
We can make this happen

    General CommentMy first post! I love this song, reminds me of my ex too. I think it is about not wanting to let go of your partner, with the lyricist willing to try anything to keep her. I think they have broken up and he is reminiscing about the good times "remember how it used to be", yet at the same time he wants her back, "don't say there's nothing, we can make this happen". I think the train reference is him either feeling suicidal, or remembering walking that way with his ex.

    By the way it says:
    "Drawn towards a moonlit sky" & also
    "It's all I want for all the pain" not swallow etc.
    & the last bit goes "all we say, we say etc." not sane.

    My new fave song given it's how I am feeling too :-(
