Walking on the rooftops, talking of times
With our eyes a-glowing, like the city lights
She stands on the ledge, she says, 'it looks so high'
You know it's a...
Long way down, feels like a long way down
Feels like a long way down, like a long way down
So honey don't leave, don't leave, please don't leave me now

Cause I can feel the rivers, winding through the lands
Two lines, and a poet, like a kind old rye
You know we could talk in that language, only we understand.
But you know...
It's a long way down, you know it's a long way down
It feels like a long way down, love it feels like a long way down
So honey don't leave, don't leave, please don't leave me now.
