  • All this time I've been hanging on
    To an edge I caught when we both were young
    That the world I want wasn't near enough
    All was distant, always off

    In all that war I'd forgotten how
    Many men might die for what I'd renounce
    I was staging life as a battleground
    No, I let that grasping fall

    May the last long year be forgiven
    All that war left within it
    I couldn't, though I'm beginning to
    And we only made it together
    Feel some change in the weather
    I couldn't though I'm beginning to

    Though it's all so uncertain, cold
    All the rafters crack, all the copper sold
    There's a ration back in a manifold
    If you need it or forgot

    May the last long year be forgiven
    All that war left within it
    I couldn't, though I'm beginning to
    And we only made it together
    Feel some change in the weather
    I couldn't though I'm beginning to

    And somehow I see it's free

    And with love and hate in the balance
    One last way past the malice
    One warm day is all I really need

    And with love and hate in the balance
    One last way past the malice
    One warm day is all I really need
