  • The rain falls up and off the street
    The clocks turn back in retreat
    Footsteps fall off of our feet
    I see the tears crawling off your cheeks
    Turn back to pink
    The slap got pulled right off of it
    We all fall back into bed again

    When you see what you've done
    You want to take back
    To take it back
    You can't, you can't
    And it's killing you

    Doctor comes off the street
    Stitch gets pulled out audibly
    Mothers fall down in their seat
    I can see time's arrow turning back to me
    Children getting light
    Disappear into a sign
    We'll all rise like snowflakes in the sky tonight Publisher: CONCORD MUSIC PUBLISHING LLC
