Noisy in my head.
Voice rings like a bell.

And try as I might I cannot forget.
And try as I might I cannot love you less.

Say how long you'll stay...
Wrapped up in the hour.
Marking off the days

Maybe we both,
knew it at the time. X 2

Well I don't know about you...
but for me, (but for me)
it's about, (it's about)
the passing of measures.
but for me, (but for me)
it's about, (it's about)
all of lifes little pleasures.
And I feel, you're taking away,
the most you can from our lazy days.

Maybe we both,
Maybe we both,
Maybe we both,
knew it at the time

Maybe we both,
knew it at the time. X 3

    General CommentI think it would have been good for the prom scene in Twilight..
    This song is amazing. I think it's about two people who are together or in love and one has to leave. So the other is just trying to enjoy the time they have left together and make the most of it.
    That's just what I get.
    <3 it.

    General CommentOh my god, I was literally thinking the exact same thing! I was thinking 'Harmless' would be good in one of the Twilight films. This song is such a beautiful song.

    It sounds like it's about trying to move on, but you can't. You know, and maybe knew deep down from the start, that you weren't right for each other, but it doesn't stop you loving them.
