There’s a vacancy on memory lane
Tell the band I can’t go home again
Swimming in silence after the last chord
Playing Marco Polo with the Lord
And all that loneliness illuminated
It will be very clear to you tonight
There, under the marquee where you waited
To see your name all spelled out in lights
But maybe baby you’re your own sign

Ladies and gentlemen
The Haunted Hearts
Ladies and gentlemen
The light that descends again
From your dead stars

Ophelia how long must I shine
For the kingdom I have left behind
Ophelia will sleepers arise?
When the ghost of what was good in me arrives
To your eyes
And all that loneliness illuminated
It will be very clear to you tonight
There under the dark sea where you waited
To see His name all spelled out in lights
But maybe baby you’re your own sign

Ladies and gentlemen
The Haunted Hearts
Ladies and gentlemen
The light that descends again
From your dead stars

The war against silence
Poverty or providence
The flowers in the ruins of our youth?
The war against silence
Violins or violence
Oh even we have something to lose...

Choose the music
Just sing
