Lyrics

Running down the years, lost in the shadows
No one ever promised you the earth before
Safe in outer space for so long you lingered
Staring at the line that you drew on the floor
Come on don’t you fade away
Living on some dream that was yesterday

Honey don’t you know
You don’t have to cry anymore
Even if the wolves are howling at the moon
Outside your door

Every minute counts on the straight and narrow
You can see it all with your blinkers on
Shooting at the stars with your poisoned arrow
Safely out of reach of where the stars belong
Come on don’t you fade away
Living on some dream that was yesterday

Honey don’t you know
You don’t have to cry anymore
Even if the wolves are howling at the moon
Outside your door

Oh no you’ve been waiting so long for the time
For good fortune to come your way
There’s no second chance when you’re old
There’s nothing left to say

At the centre of the bone is the burning marrow
The blood that’s in your veins keep flowing on
Longer than it takes for you to arrive
Where only empty hearts can truly survive
You don’t have to go down that way
Learning how to live when you’re old and grey

Come on don’t you know
You don’t have to cry anymore
Even if the wolves are howling at the moon
Outside your door

There’s never been an even change
Like this one before
Honey don’t you know
You don’t have to cry anymore
