I forgot about what I was singing
I got distracted by the places I was going
Another summer, a new beginning
I think I let myself believe I was ending

But I was still alive

From the city where we shivered
To a single room just east of a river
I followed you, you followed me
We were thinking of the thing that we could be

And we were alive
We are still alive

Let the sun begin to rise
Let it clear the cobwebs from our eyes
And in time let it reveal the things that we hide

Why do I betray you, dear?
In the dark where no one knows
The things that we fear.
