Let's pretend that we'll be here tomorrow
And I'll try for you to be a little more on time
I know you need to say you know you've let me down
But you haven't and it's hard to talk
with people all around

Please don't say how proud you are
Lets do the things we normally do
I'll say see you later
You'll sing a line or two
From your rebel songs sung out of tune

Don't hold my hand for longer
than you need to

Lets forget that we're here
and make some plans
We'll go for walks
Sit on the bench we always sat
I'll tell you
every little detail of my day
and so will you
Don't try to stay awake
I'm feeling tired too

This is just another day
Let’s do the things we normally do

I'll say see you later you'll sing a line or two
From your rebel songs sung out of tune

Don't hold my hand for longer than you need to

Armored cars and tanks and guns
came to take away our sons
And everybody’s stood behind
The man behind the wire
There’s a fight to love
A fight to have
Your bed’s a battlefield and back
And all of this will just be stripped away

Let’s do the things we normally do
I'll say see you later you'll sing a line or two
From your rebel songs sung out of tune
Don’t hold my hand for longer than you need to

Don’t look me in the eye more than you need to

Don’t try to say goodbye if I don’t want to
Don't say how proud you are
And say I’m far away
and take along your
and say a word
and I can say fade away
