when the night came and took us
and the jukebox was turned up
with the light of our choices
we did not lose our voices

and the songs barely left us
and the waitress caught her breath
we rose to the surface
to fulfill our purpose

as we walked past some staring
i noticed you daring
eyes to be carrying
that smile you've been wearing

in the graze of those screams
we decided to go free
in the haze of our dreams we
saw possibilities

and in a week maybe less you
were packing your bags to
leave, while you still knew
the reasons you needed to

on the way to the train you
you seemed to be brand new
with your hair flowing through
the open window to, the moon

in front of the station
someone who was waitin'
for his lover to wave to him
got knocked to the pavement

by the ambulance light
we decided to stay awake
for fear that we wouldn't meet
someone else to greet
