    Lyrics

    All the lines of the cars at the college at night
    All the pillows and blankets, their posters and lights
    All their hopelessly young faces
    Tight with the solace of years

    And you look at me blankly, did I miss something?
    All these kids seem to be less like ghosts on the ring
    Of the graveyard we built from the sting
    Of these horrible fears
    And I try not to laugh as it brings you to tears

    But I won't tell your secret, if you won't tell mine
    I'll just speak quietly, use a well-rehearsed line
    My, my how time makes one long for such ignorant peers
    And you grab hold of my hand as I whisper in your ear

    On the day that you die, please remember these words
    You were the luckiest gift that I'll never deserve
    I can feel you and me like my heartbeat
    And bloodstream in turns

    And it's desperate, I know, but please don't let go
    I can't begin to repay all these debts that I owe
    I'm just a sketch of a man, I'll let you know
    When I sharpen the blur

    I've hurt you, deserted you, left you alone
    With your loneliness to wear like a crown on a throne
    I'm as selfish and trite as anything God's ever known

    Oh but don't be afraid 'cause I'm going down too
    When I finally fade, I'll be fading with you
    I'll just hold onto your hand, God I wish there was more I could do

    These kids have no clue, it's all happening too
    Let's not tell them, let's pretend it's just me and you
    We'll find out soon enough, but by then we'll be dust on their shoes

    And these kids have no clue, it's just me and you
    Let's not tell them, let's pretend it's happening too
    We'll find out soon enough, but by then we'll have nothing to lose

    I'll just hold onto your hand
    God, I wish there was more I could do
