Careless Lovers

One by one the stars come out

And pull me into silence

And you told me when 

We were careless lovers:

“Pour your mind out every day

Under midnight candles

And I believe that 

We can live forever”

Three by three the memories march

Through a peaceful slumber

And there are you on 

The face of every stranger 

Waiting on the other side

Of where I can’t be followed 

And you still try to 

Tell me I’m just dreaming

And why should the night

Bleed your song?

One by one the stars go out

And the night don’t last forever

Like we tried when 

We were careless lovers
