Don’t you know how this ends?
[With] two children in a labyrinth.

Beaujolais for the long night,
But I know it’s only making me useless,

Oh, you want to reach for my hand –
But I was there, oh I wasn’t there.

Won’t it make any sense?
I know I’m half of a half-dreamed ruin.

Feel the anvil on my heart –
Don’t you tell me I’m weightless, a western wind.

Would you find it easier
If my name came first in your nonsense curse?

[Well] Hallelujah for you –
Don’t you know yet what you’re not to hang on to?

Am I in your nightmares, the ones where you can’t move
As I float down the stairs?

Oh don’t go remind me now –
I use to laugh about the past.
Oh don’t go remind me now –
I weighed it for way too long
Oh don’t go remind me now –
I use to laugh about the past.
