Is back where you used to go
If grown-ups would laugh this long
As you watch the hours slow
Years may go by
Years may go by

So hold on to your special place
…something to keep it in
And stay inside this foolish grave
Though any day your secret's…
Then again years may go by
Years may go by

You saved your own special friend
'cause he needs something to hide in
And you stay inside that foolish grave
When every day your secret's in
And then again years may go by
Years may go by
Years may go by
Years may go by
