Tore it up and walked away
Why'd you wanna go do that for?
Threw your Lego in
The lake
Why'd you wanna go do that for?

And you're a long time coming
A long time
Coming home
Do you see me reeling off the lines
I've seen your, I've seen your
Eyes

How can you grow old
You were my triumph?
How can you grow old
You were my
Triumph?

Turned your face into the squall
Why'd you wanna go do that for?
You carved
Your name into the wall
Why'd you wanna go do that for?

And you're a long time
Coming
A long time coming home
Do you see me reeling off the lines
I've seen your, I've
Seen your eyes

How can you grow old
You were my triumph?
How can you grow old
You were
My triumph?
