Did you see me last night in that terrible dream
Where you were still so in love with me?
And I caught the sun sleeping with the sea,
then darkness covered everything.

Eloquence, absent ambition,
You're never alone, still your hollow head has emptied all its ghosts.
Lucky, fortune, superstitious,
I'm always alone, still I'm always looking to your eyes to know which way to go.

Still, I'm never letting go,
Though I know you said "never say never"
But it don't look as though
This will ever get better.

Still, I'm never letting go.
You said "never say never,"
But it don't look as though
This will ever get better.

You're eyes burn like candlelight flickering,
Lit at both ends and so ready to believe.
Like a cancer spreading through our dreams,
Digging graves in our memories.

And your eyes are open windows to the sea,
Your heart is barely keeping beat.
Your body is protesting from the deep,
Dropping anchor in my memory.
