I will build a love out of pictures and words
And scratched and blurred will be preserved in plastic canisters
And I will lay the lovers on the cutting room floor
With their bodies almost touching
And with just enough room for thought

And uncertainty
A hint arose upon our memory
The softest hand that brushed the weakest knee
Your eyes, they rest just too long upon me

You are just a song and you will only last that long
You are just a song and you will only last that long

If Eisenstein can do it,
Then I'm sure I can do it
Take your best lines and I'll glue it
Over all your sad refrains

And if it's all in the edit
Then there's no need to regret it
We'll just take the sad scenes
And cut them frame for frame
And we'll repeat the beginning at the end again

You are just a song and you will only last that long
You are just a song and you will only last that long
You are just a song and you will only last that long
You are just a song and you will only last that long

You are just a name
And I will say it 'til it means nothing again
