Should – In Monotone lyrics

All throughout the night
The world was all alight
It was as if the stars had fallen down
And taken flight

You and I would be
I made this guarantee
You think those words have lost their meaning now
I disagree

Stand on our headstone
Though features all are worn
You’ll see the dates go on and on and on
In monotone
You’ll see the dates go on and on and on
In monotone

Afternoons on telephones
And late night walks by light of moons
Is this so hard to understand?
Or have you just decided to be cruel?

Ridiculing all the fools and
Bending, breaking all the rules
Well, I refuse to let it go
So watch me now as I untie this rope

This is melancholy, dear
Melancholy, dear
Melancholy, dear
