Well, mother bought us tickets for the blue parade
And we grew up on the corner in the dark arcade
Stealing off together to the pictureshow
When the streets outside were almost burning
Taking shelter in the darkness from the sun

And if I make it out again I’ll see you there
Far from all the madness by the river fair
And honey, time can be a rover and a wrecking ball
And after all these years are you still learning
That we’re losing so much more that what we’ve won

It’s ok if you come undone
It’s ok if you put them on
Just remember, just remember

Pouring rain and summer days in the afternoon
Sitting in the corner of a darkened room
Tiny little islands just like everyone
Close enough to see but never touching
Big enough to feel but always wanting

It’s ok if you come undone
It’s ok, honey the race is almost run
We gotta find a way to catch that setting sun
