    Lyrics

    Since you're breathing
    Is it all that space can fill?
    So just by looking in
    I'll be looking still
    You find and follow stories well

    You're naked except for a newspaper
    The headline's telling me
    That fortune favours the brave
    I've never been known to be that brave
    What I want is on its way out
    All I needed was an easier way to stay

    Walking around the city
    As the light fades
    Is that all that you remain?
    I'm thinking about these promises
    that I have ever made
    I know what they will never say
    I know what they will never say
    Century after century they remain

    And if I need to remember
    That the entire earth is outside this window
    So close the windows
    Keep the curtains shut forever
    And if I need to remember
    The entire earth is outside this room
    So close the windows
    Close the windows

    Isn't it romantic to be romantic
    When you don't understand what you love?
    Or if a word like that could ever mean anything
    But what you want is on its way out
    I didn't hear cheerleading for creative writers
    And your cheekbones
    Don't taste of anything at all
    It's on its way out
    It's just an easier way to stay

    Talking about a city
    That the light made
    Is it all that you remain?
    It's the same story told
    But it's these stories that don't fade
    I know what they will never say
    I know what they will never say
    Century after century they remain

    Is it all that you remain?
    (I know what they will never say)
