Remember when we laughed so much
We couldn’t sleep?
Remember when we laughed so much
We couldn’t sleep, at all?

We checked every couch for change
Just so we could eat

And now it feels like I could go my whole life
Without knowing anyone
And now it feels like I could go my whole life
Without knowing anyone...but you

Up on the rooftop, I hear you singing
Up on the rooftop, and it sounded nice
Melodies carrying to the people down below
They stop their daily life of lies
To listen to your gentle voice

All I said was, “Time will kill us all.”
I didn’t think you’d take those words of mine
Straight to your soul
We’ve got desperate demands
Forming in our heads
Well, I’m tired of feeling nervous
And trying to dust what’s already rusted

Up on the rooftop, I hear you singing
Up on the rooftop, and it sounded nice
Melodies carrying to the people down below
They stop their daily life of lies
To listen to your gentle voice

Stay until, the words we’ve built,
Like monuments, are known across the world
Stay until, the words we’ve built,
Like monuments, are known across the world

Even in these desperate times,
It’s comforting to be alive
Even in these desperate times,
It’s comforting to be alive
Even in these desperate times,
It’s comforting to be alive

Even though the city folk
Walk around like lonely ghosts
Blank expressions
They find hope,
In your gentle voice
