I thought you'd come back
At least I prayed (so I prayed)
The romance has been dead for years
(The romance is dead, the romance is dead, you'd come back)
But I've been too afraid
To dig the grave (so I prayed)
Relief, support, never came
Memories carry me through the days
Of when we were kids
And angels came to watch us play
Close my eyes
Just for tonight
The sun still sleeps
And when she wakes
A movie that plays in my mind
Remembering you helps me survive
Every day a re-run of the next
I promised to stay by your side
That all would change
I can't complain
Another victim of the game
Close my eyes
Just for tonight
The sun still sleeps
And when she wakes
Maybe love will find us again
For there is always tomorrow
Sincerely 'til the end
Close my eyes
Just for tonight
The sun still sleeps
And when she wakes
You'll be a memory
