it burns me down when I think of all the tears you've cried
for one million miles I've I logged on roads that led away from you
knowing there was nothing you could do
inside my mind I saw you driving inside your car
just one silhouette in the wind with a prayer that this would not go to far
away from my residual flame
our bodies growing cold like stars
that lose their will to burn and fade into the night
but we could burn like the northern lights

Chorus
baby – please stay
we can make it through another day

it may – must we?
all the fiber optic arguments
without the warmth of your flesh we couldn't really make much sense
but now it's over and I am here my body next to yours
we'll feed the flame with the fuel of time and burn like the northern lights
I'm tired of all the senseless fights

Chorus
baby – please stay
we can make it through another day
baby – please stay
we can make it through another day
we could burn like the northern lights –
baby

you love me and I love you
so, baby – please stay
we can make it through another day
baby – please stay
we can make it through another day
baby – please stay
we can make it through another day
baby – please stay
we can make it through another day
we could burn like the northern lights –
baby
