They were born beautiful, so right away
They swore that they'd get themselves a house one day
And read to each other, despite all the others
That have passed through their back gates
They were both radiant, and far away
Living on a diet of romance and faith
'Til history crept in and wouldn't leave them
It's a classless kind of fate
It holds its ground in the way that death just makes you wait
With new fears to head at the cutting room floors
Where their hopes are
Because it's not pretty
And if they had to watch a movie of it
I'm sure they'd both be horrified
Horrified and bored
All the hope gets shafted
To bet on the good life
For all the granite etched in
They may as well have been man and wife
All the fits he'd throw
Feeling her anger grow
It's not the way that they used to
Talk to one another, like they used to

    General CommentThey were born beautiful, so right away
    They swore that they'd get themselves a house one day
    And read to each other, despite all the others
    That have passed through their back gates
    They were both radiant, and far away
    Living on a diet of romance and faith
    'Til history crept in and wouldn't leave them
    It's a classless kind of fate
    It holds its ground in the way that death just makes you wait
    New fears to edit
    The cutting room floor is where their hopes are
    Because it's not pretty
    And if you had to watch a movie of it
    I'm sure you'd both be horrified and bored
    All the hope that gets shafted
    To bet on the good life
    For all the granite etched in
    They may as well have been man and wife
    All the fits he'd throw
    Feeling her anger grow
    It never gets found, lost in used to be's
    You're left with so much wasted energy
    So now to cold satellites that have crashed to earth:
    Welcome home
