You can’t remember when you lost your smile
It’s been so long you’ve been down
And you’re trying to find a happier time
But the circus won’t come back to town
And the haunted heartaches remembered
Are lingering stagnant around
And that cold empty whole
That you’re feeling inside
Is sometimes your favorite sound

Well you’re trying to get out from the weather
Cuz the dampness is turning you blue
But the rain has your name tattooed on its arm
In a heart with an arrow torn through
And the ghost of a lover forgotten
Is etched in the back of your dreams
And the song that she weeps
As she rocks you to sleep
Is one of your favorite things

Someday the darks clouds won’t cover the sun
Someday your heart can run free
Someday the race to that heavenly place,
Will end when we finally see.
That a chorus of angels with torn wings
Still can’t remember the words,
But the tune they all know,
So they give it a go
And it signals the end of the world.
