there was a boy and a lady
and between them seven birthdays
and they grew old, and they grew happy
til she was called for, and he went crazy

he said between love and affection,
i lost something that i needed
something i lost here to breathe in
and between love and affection,
i lost something to believe in
something i liked here to breathe in

she finds herself lost in the city
but the buildings, they are all broken
and on the pavements, full of confessions
she took a stone and carved directions

somewhere between love and affection
'cause he lost something to believe in
something he lost here to breathe in
but wax on his bones
he checked out off every angle
every part they had to find him
every part that we've roamed

he spied the pavement with all its direction
and followed a half-ride to where she was sleeping
alone
i can't go running by her window
he lost his faith from every angle
she waits to see the love, love, love
love to be for a ?
the time has come to comprehend this
so take my hand
and now, as one, begin again
