When the light's on me
I'm cold inside
and I drop my lines
but you take your time

Across the stage
with a clouded mind
I've lost my touch
but you take your time

And like my darling above me, am I
golden still, and bright?
Or am I just a star that's fallen
at your feet tonight?

Take your time, take your time

And there's my name on the marquee, all shiny
And there's my girl in the crowd
And here's my voice, all shaking and frightned
but she's smiling at me now

And here's my life all before me, a shadow
the stage names, the voices, the lies
My darling died to look down on me always
still I can't go on tonight

Let go of me, you lovely ghost
Your embrace is enough to taint my sleep
to taunt my every waking day
And I took it to mean your presence was so very strong
No matter how I wished you away, this feeling lingers, and

I waited at the gate, you bruised me so deeply
I'll never walk again, I've lost it completely
Then I came apart, lost every hope I ever had
but I'd have never died this way
if I'd have never held your hand

Your hand, your hand
your hand, your hand
Your hand, your hand
your hand, your hand
