With a kiss that was heaven sent
And a look of ambivalence
Slouching off to find a brand new fascination
Put a plate on the stereo
Pine away for the Romeo
Trying to smash your heart into a thousand summers

Did it have to be as typical as a tragedy
Yours, mine and our lives to compromise

I can say that I knew you when
You could shine like a diadem
Shining on a better life, a better you
Something you could turn into

Did it have to be as typical as a tragedy
Yours, mine and our lives to compromise

If I was the only one
If you were the last alive
Would we sit there like the amateurs
And watch our days go by
Waiting for the universe to die

If I was the only one
If you were the last alive
Would we sit there like the amateurs
And watch our days go by
Waiting for the universe to die
