some, would let it go to start again
knowing now how all our best intentions never lit the world on fire
lights, illuminate the exit signs
and over the wings the skies an open endless sea, crowding up surrounding me

and all, of Detroit waves
goodnight
spread out
beneath
me now
if I could, if I could stay
believe me
I would (I would)

and when, you're warm enough to share your sheets
bold enough to make believe that I was only there long enough to disappear
I'll still, say your name to fall asleep
over and over a cynic saying rosary
a liar in his make believe

and all, of Detroit waves
goodnight
spread out
beneath
me now
if I could, if I could change
believe me
I would (Detroit waves)

and Detroit waves,
goodnight
spread out
beneath me now
if I could change
believe me
I would
yes I would (I would, I would...)
