In the dark of the night
By the sapphire
I gave a nod to a girl
And she looked like she was looking at a spectre
And she kind of smiled and turned

I knew the back of your hand like the back of my hand
We used to go like red and black
And it's so strange to feel this distance where there was once love

I’m alive like the sound of the wrecking crew
I’m alone with the lights of the avenue
I don’t know if I know where I’m going to
Tomorrow’s a new day
That’s such a cliché

There’s a kid, bangs a drum, on the corner
And I’m walking to the time
This persistent, solitary rhythm
It’s an urban lullaby

I knew the back of your hand like the back of my hand
We used to go like red and black
And it's so strange to feel this distance where there was once love

I’m alive like the sound of the wrecking crew
I’m alone with the lights of the avenue
I don’t know if I know where I’m going to
Tomorrow’s a new day
That’s such a cliché

Looking back, all along here
There’s nothing wrong here
I still get a little bit crazy sometimes
Had I dream, when I woke up,
You taught me to show up
I guess sometimes you’ve got to be cruel to be kind

And it’s so strange to feel this distance where there was once love

Whoa-oh
Whoa-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh

I’m alive like the sound of the wrecking crew
I’m alone with the lights of the avenue
I don’t know if I know where I’m going to
Tomorrow’s a new day
That’s such a cliché
That’s such a cliché
