Forgetting all that you knew
He doesn't feel it's true
He longed for something to do
Why, in the middle of the night,
In a midnight hopeless time,
Hear a riddle:
We couldn't, we wouldn't
My shattered illusions
We played on, we stayed on
My shattered illusions

Small trinkets all that we liked
Trays on the very long flight
And in the midnight hopeless time
And in the flower of our lives
Blind by the blaze of light
It's Saturday, our holiday
My shattered illusions
Such charity, such clarity
My shattered illusions

How or why could I or anyone surmise
Mean words to break through to you
Real crying to break through to you
I couldn't do that to you

A ribbon blew in the wind
A walk to look for a friend
The summer never should end
And in the middle of the night
In a midnight hopeless time
Just silence
We wouldn't, we couldn't
My shattered illusions
We stayed on, we played on
My shattered illusions

How or why could I or anyone surmise
Mean lies to break through to you
Real crying to break through to you
Sparkles of light shine below
Dance on the feathery snow.
