I'm keeping you mine
For the rest of years
For the rest of years
And your watery eyes are gonna rest someday
And your watery eyes are gonna rest someday
And your watery eyes are gonna rest someday
And your watery eyes

Tell the saint I'm gonna be a little late
Drawing bands around the river
For the rest of years

All the time that you faded away from
All the time but you faded away from me

They can't see what I can see
Tell them to wait for me
Turn everything around
I can turn everything around

They can't see what I can see
Tell them to wait for me
Turn everything around
I can turn everything around

I'll have you in my sleep
For the rest of Years
For the rest of Years
Turn the watery eyes trying to hear you
Turn the watery eyes trying to hear you
Turn the watery eyes trying to hear you
Turn the watery eyes trying to hear you

All the time but you faded away from
All the time but you faded away from me

They can't see what I can see
Tell them to wait for me
Turn everything around
I can turn everything around

They can't see what I can see
Tell them to wait for me
I can turn everything around
I can turn everything around

They can't see what I can see
Tell them to wait for me
I can turn everything around
I can turn everything around

All the time that you faded away from
All the time that you faded away from
All the time but you faded away from me
