This should be a night to be remembered.
We'll remember you can be sure of that.
On and on we walk out to the crowd
I'm expected, you're expected.
No one else will know that you've been crying.
Think of where we are and who will care.
I should of hired someone who could sing just a little better
Prince controversy

I should feel we're going somewhere better
But I don't.
Why should we be anything but strangers
In clothes that we don't own?

I just realized that this has been the first time
We've seen each other's vulnerability.
Somewhere between hello and goodbye,
There is something serious that we always missed

I should feel we're going somewhere better
But I don't
Why should we be anything but strangers
In clothes that we don't own

Drifting in and out a priest is talking
Something about a body from a bone.
A thinking man said I could never be
Half as close to you as you are to me

I should feel it all leads somewhere better
But I don't
Why should we be anything but strangers
In clothes that we don't own
I should feel we'll get to some place better
But I don't
Why should we be anything but strangers
In clothes that we don't own
