He had his hand wrapped around his ambition and she had her eyes on him
He swore to himself this is just a fixation a relationship built upon sin

Whatever happens don't let go of my hand save the last dance
Don't you cry I'm by your side
Cause the lights are fading I'm way past waiting the city is praying
That for tonight she'll close her eyes

There is a world, and I've only seen it in my dreams destiny's forgotten me
So girl close your eyes
The darkness has a hold of me
I'm blinded now I'll never see
I am my own worst enemy
It wasn't meant to be

Whatever happens don't let go of my hand save the last dance
Don't you cry I'm by your side
Cause the lights are fading I'm way past waiting the city is praying
That for tonight she'll close her eyes

So run away this is the end there's no reason to stay
So take a bow let the symphony play a song while I say so long
And there's a place and I'll be locked in the darkness for days
But this is wear I call my home I'm home

And I wont be the one to cast the first stone I will try to lock myself out
Of this world
And as the pages burn the hourglass is turned upside down
We're running out of time

Whatever happens don't let go of my hand save the last dance
Don't you cry when I say say goodbye
Cause the lights are fading I'm way past waiting the city is playing a
Lullaby so I'll say goodnight
