  • There we were thick as thieves
    Frightened by shadows and the autumn leaves
    We wore stolen hearts, vintage souls
    Aided by lies amongst the media foes

    And hey ho
    Where did it go?
    When did we lose our sight?
    And it's a nice show
    The ones we perform
    Performing them day and night
    Night

    See the lines upon my face
    Walking circles with the human race
    And all the little people
    They want to be free
    But I can't get there
    Cause I got you holding me back

    And hey ho
    Where did it go?
    When did we lose our sight?
    And it's a nice show
    The ones we perform
    Performing them day and night
    Night

    Let me be free

    La la la la la la la la
    la la la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la
    la la la la la la la la

    Gave you all the high skies
    But you gave me night
    I gave you all the high skies
    But you gave me night, yeah
    I gave you all the high skies
    But you gave me night
    I gave you all the high skies
    But you gave me night
    Let the lights sing again

    There we were thick as thieves
    Frightened by shadows and the autumn leaves

    Goodbye my sweet
    Goodbye
