The Coral – Late Afternoon lyrics

It's late afternoon
Smoke fills the room
The actor sighs
Dogs barking outside

The night seems the same
It sleeps in the day
The actress cries
For their last goodbyes

It's always this way
You're passing me by

On days like these
Walk to the sea
It's too hard to find
Mirrors collide

The end of the street
The place where we meet
With tears in our eyes
Stay for a while

It's always the same
You're passing me by

It's late afternoon
You enter the room
The music dies
And leaves us behind
It's all just a game
