Mumford & Sons – Tompkins Square Park lyrics

[Intro]

[Verse 1]
Oh babe, meet me in Tompkins Square Park
I wanna hold you in the dark
One last time
Just one last time
And oh babe, can you tell what’s on my tongue?
Can you guess that I’ll be gone?
With the twilight
With the twilight

[Chorus]
But no flame burns forever, oh no
You and I both know this all too well
And most don't even last the night
No they don't, they say they don't

[Verse 2]
Oh babe, I've never been so lost
I wanna hear you lie
One last time
Just one last time
But oh babe, I really wish you would not cry
I only ever told you one lie
When it could have been a thousand
It might as well have been a thousand

[Chorus 2]
But no flame burns forever, oh no
You and I both know this all too well
And most don't even last the night
No they don't, they say they don't
And we can talk it round again girl
Round and round, round and round again
Or we could leave it all tonight
Leave it all just leave it all

[Bridge]
I never tried to trick you babe
I just tried to work it out
But I was swallowed up by doubt
If only things were black and white
Cause I just want to hold you tight
Without holding back my mind
Without holding back my mind

[Guitar Solo]

[Chorus 1]

[Outro/Segue]
