He believed in you
Remember when he said:
"Words are always hard to manage,
can't get out of bed"


Now hear him
Through the empty city
He swept you off your feet
You're sweeping up the dust now, baby
Drink your whiskey neat


Come on, old lovers
Fall down in the grass
Wake up with the breeze
Gather 'round the torn up pictures
Join the family


Hold the blankets tighter
Turn on all the lights
Mummify the lovers
Burn them in the night


Gather our belongings
And throw them off the train
Let go off the railings
Let go off the reins


Take on me
Take me on
Take me on
Take on me


Come on, old lovers
Fall down in the grass
Wake up with the breeze
Gather 'round the torn up pictures
Join the family


Now hear him
Through the empty city
He swept you off your feet
You're sweeping up the dust now, baby
Drink your whiskey neat


Hold the blankets tighter
Turn on all the lights
Mummify the lovers
Burn them in the night


Gather our belongings
And throw them from the train
Let go off the railings
Let go off the reins


Take on me
Take me on
Take me on
Take on me
