I rewrite my life beneath the moonlight,
Please hold me now till my breath runs out,
There are many things that I am not,
But there's one thing that I can't deny

A double bluff you fed me lines,
The shortest cut you're searching for,
A mesh of tones surround your eyes,
I wish I knew how it came to this

I always said you could rely on me,
Now it seems that I was wrong,
I want you to stay,
I want you to stay with me

Cos nothing works round here,
Where cranes collect the sky,
I long for the neon signs of night,
Cos nothing works round here,
You know the way I feel,
Can you remember what we had?

Why do you think I over take?
I speak to you and you don't say no,
A camera runs just to collect,
I wish I knew how it came to this

The lies we tell are bound on film,
And you start to push your lips to mine,
Outside my room you closed your eyes,
And in the end it came to this

I always said you could rely on me,
Now it seems that I was wrong,
I want you to stay,
I want you to stay with me

Cos nothing works round here,
Where cranes collect the sky,
I think of your face at night,
Cos nothing works round here

You know the way I feel
Can you remember what we had?
As time gets more compressed,
You're always my reminder,
A lifetime disappears,
Can you remember what we had?
As time gets more compressed,
You're always my reminder,
You're always my reminder

You know the way I feel,
