lyrics

Days grow short and lose distinction as time passes
I’m thinking of you now
I can’t put out the torch, it has to burn out on it’s own
So I pull out your old Maxell tapes and play some radio songs

And I scuff the kitchen floor with my Sunday shoes
like you and I used to do
Just before I fall apart
the blood in my head ends up in my heart

Old times old times weighing heavy on the mind
so I ditch my day job for a day and lock it all inside
Shining by the light of the stereo
Taping pop songs off the radio
I remember you in eighty-four
knocking it around to Purple Rain in the record store
Playing songs we can’t afford
now the tipping point has tipped and our fountain of youth has turned to shit

So I scuff the kitchen floor with my Sunday shoes
like you and I used to do
Just before I fall apart
the blood in my head ends up in my heart
