You took a face from a magazine
You thought it could be you
You thought it could be you

You took a ring on a finger to be
You took it to be love
You took it to be love

You took a light in a window to mean
You took it to mean more
You took it to mean more

Now every night
You turn out the light
Later
Every day
You find you've moved away
Further

Before you decide
Is this the last time
I'm on your side
I'm on your side
I'm on your side

You take one day and a hundred to be
You take that to be alive
You take that to be alive

You take the face of a stranger to be
You take that to be hope
You take that to be hope

You see a light in a window and think
You think it could be you
You think it could be you

Now every night
You turn out the light
Later
Every day
You find you've moved away
Further

Before you decide
Is this the last time
I'm on your side
I'm on your side
I'm on your side
