lyrics

Urban Deserts

I want to see the orange lights of the Lincoln Tunnel
flickering through the windows ‘round,
then get to your door and call up to your room,
so you could toss down your keys to let me in.
We could spend the whole night like before,
isolated away behind closed doors.

If all the best moments of your life
were like all the stars in the clearest of nights
then I just tried to be one of the brightest
among those myriad spheres of light.
Will you remember to look up and find me?
Will you remember me at all?

The calm blue waters of your Arabian eyes
made me believe that they’d continue hydrating my heart,
at least for the meantime, ‘cause nothing lasts for long.
But you can still walk through these urban deserts with me
‘til the earth rumbles and divides between us,
pushing you east and pulling me west.

If all the best moments of your life
were like all the stars in the clearest of nights
then I just tried to be one of the brightest
among those myriad spheres of light.

Will you remember to look up and find me?
Will you remember me at all?

Don’t walk away from me in fear…

If all the best moments of your life
were like all the stars in the clearest of nights
then I just tried to be one of the brightest
among those myriad spheres of light.

If all the best moments of your life
were like all the stars in the clearest of nights
then I just wanted you to give me a chance
to make a place for me in that sky.

Will you remember to look up and find me?
Will you remember me at all?
