The moon was black as your head fell down.
A tear for trying.
Blank stares against a midnight sky,
as waves crash into sands.
Making each strand pure.

I just wish I could say the same for my intentions.

We're just two dumb kids with big, full lips.
Frustrated be a world that leaves us broken... (it leaves us broken.)
We're just children with thoughts and hopes and dreams,
taken from the movie screen.
Stolen from an old romance film.

There will be a hold a up tonight,
a train gets robbed beneath a September sky.
There will be a hold up tonight,
and as the sun runs out, so do I.

The same sands scrape beneath my feet,
and you are hopeless,
while I am hopeless.
A sudden sadness creeps between us,
a subtle silence sends us weak
into a cold, cold world.

We're just two dumb kids with big, full lips.
Frustrated be a world that leaves us broken... (it leaves us broken.)
We're just children with thoughts and hopes and dreams,
taken from the movie screen.
Stolen from an old romance film.

There will be a hold a up tonight,
a train gets robbed beneath a September sky.
There will be a hold up tonight,
and as the sun runs out, so do I.
as the clock runs out, so do I.
