  • Oh babe, meet me in Tompkins Square Park
    I wanna hold you in the dark
    One last time
    Just one last time

    And oh babe, can you tell what's on my tongue?
    Can you guess that I'll be gone?
    With the twilight
    With the twilight

    But no flame burns forever, oh no
    You and I both know this all too well
    And most don't even last the night
    No they don't, they say they don't

    Oh babe, I've never been so lost
    I wanna hear you lie
    One last time
    Just one last time

    But oh babe, I really wish you would not cry
    I only ever told you one lie
    When it could have been a thousand
    It might as well have been a thousand

    But no flame burns forever, oh no
    You and I both know this all too well
    And most don't even last the night
    No they don't, they say they don't

    And we can talk it round again girl
    Round and round, round and round again
    Or we could leave it out to die
    Leave it out just leave it out

    I never tried to trick you babe
    I just tried to work it out
    But I was swallowed up by doubt
    If only things were black and white
    'Cause I just want to hold you tight
    Without holding back my mind
    Without holding back my mind

    But no flame burns forever, oh no
    You and I both know this all too well
    And most don't even last the night Writer/s: BENJAMIN WALTER DAVID LOVETT, EDWARD JAMES MILTON DWANE, MARCUS OLIVER JOHNSTONE MUMFORD, WINSTON AUBREY ALADAR MARSHALL
