20 million diamonds crown the sky tonight
silence for two lovers’ everything
they tell me whispering’s a virtue, and holding hands’ their game
‘tis cold, it’s cold
and as i watch the candle (burn/turn) this might (away/to day)
my life collects another yesterday
alone in the darkness, i am waiting for the one
while lovers wait for the sun, lay i waiting for the one.
stalk the streets do lovers in this town tonight
20 million heartbeats holding hands
for them, it’s darkness that’s most precious,
but tell me who can i embrace?
the cold? there’s no one here to hold
who’ll light the darkness with her name,
heal this blackout pain
