"Fair Verona" as written by and Dan Mangan....
Turn the bars into cars
And wait for the lights to change
And take shape of people we used to know
'Til they grow less fond of knowing

And we can ride in the night
And discard all the facts on our backs
Remembering the thoughts we thought
Since we got over our parents

And if we go where we go
And don't tell anyone where we're from
We can cut and paste the stars to our hearts
And understand their language

And we won't spit with our mouths
Or draw lines in the dirt with our heels
And every single day we'll just wait
And hope to see the next one

If we go down too easy my dear
We'll still be the heart of envy of all our friends and peers

So I get home to my home
The thoughts are in my head
And my bed is full of things I left
When I left her here

And the light through the blinds
And through the windowpane in the lane
Where the fire is getting cold
For they have burned all of their belongings

And up the stairs there's a pair
Who like to be made sure
That they were everything they are
For they are sadly mistaken

Now I forget how we met
Those days have all passed
Now the cast is filing to the stage
In a rage and taking their places

If we go down too easy my dear
We'll still be the heart of envy of all our peers and friends my dear
To them we'll be has-beens
To them be rouge waves
To them be lost trains
Just posers posing

We'll leat with our eyes
And weep our goodbyes
And if that's what it takes
We'll both drink the Kool-Aid again

'Til we've forgotten where our hearts have been
'Til we've forgotten where our hearts have been
'Til we forget just where our hearts have been

    General CommentThe line is "when I left earlier." I thought it was left her here too until I say him live recently!

    And the two blanks:

    to them, be rogue waves.
    to them, be lost trains,

    General CommentNot the only incorrect lyric, sadly.
    It is "When I left earlier" as mugsyd87 says,
    But also the lines toward the end SHOULD read

    "We'll EAT WITH our eyes
    And WEEP our goodbyes
    And if that's what it takes
    We'll both drink the Kool-Aid again"

    And yeah, rogue waves and lost trains. Good work.
