lyrics

I gotta go now and leave you to rest.
The families formally wish you the best.
If a dream were required, they'd have you for mine
but you're just too dangerous.

Diamonds we made out of glass and a crash
are still stuck in the grate like an age that won't pass.
You know I require daily reminders
of the summer we rode around

So I won't forget the day I let
the olives of your eyes inside
the hungry void of mine.

I ride by the place you live now.
It’s a castle on a hill.
And I know that it might seem just a like
A dream you'd dream but still.
Now, I really wonder if the kids might've been
more than dreamers within
A late, late, late Victorian.

I gotta go now and try half my best,
lay claim to the name of a modest success.
You're dark and you're strange, enamored of pain,
but I love you anyway.

I ride by the place you live now,
In the old ward on the hill.
And I know that it might seem just a like
A dream you'd dream but still.
Now, I really wonder if the kids might've been
more than dreamers within
A late, late, late Victorian.

And I won't forget the day I let
the olives of your eyes inside
the hungry void of mine.

They said you steered me wrong.
I guess you probably did.
Before the summer is gone,
come steer me wrong again.
