• He went to see for a day
    He wanted to know what to say
    When he asked what he'd done
    In the past to someone
    That he loved endlessly
    Now she's gone, and so is he

    I went to war every morning
    I lost my way, but now I'm following
    What you said in my arms
    What I read in the charms
    That I loved durably
    Now it's dead and gone, and I am free

    I went to sleep for the daytime
    I shut my eyes to the sunshine
    Turned my head away from the noise
    Bruise and drip decay of childish toys
    That I love arguably
    All our laboring gone to seed

    We went out to play for the evening
    And wanted to hold on to the feeling
    And the stretch in the sun
    And the breathlessness as we run
    To the beach endlessly
    As the sun creeps up on the sea Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
