The city yawns and stretches
And starts to sing
With the voice of an elder
And the young ones slept

Heavy eyes
That see clearer
But can still dream
This feeling hurts me
But it's gone so quickly

And you stood near to me
And you burn so brightly
I just smile politely
An error
And I see it
Can't you suddenly appear?

Now I'm tired of waiting
And this hesitation
You buried a hatchet
In our own backyard

Buried a hatchet in our own backyard
Buried a hatchet in our own backyard
Buried a hatchet in our own backyard
Buried a hatchet in our own backyard
In our own backyard
In our own backyard
In our own backyard
In our own backyard
