I would sit on the hillside
Don’t you see I am dreaming of a better life
Of something that I could share with you
That takes us away from all this pain and jealousy…..

From my elevated place
I would like upon a far off lake
And dream of the swims we would take
And dream of the love we would make
The fruits devoured in this Eden
Love in the moonlight of evening.

But there’s something wrong in the way you look
there’s something strong in the way that you fucked it up
There’s something wrong in the routes we took
There’s something all along that meant we never had the luck

When I took to the place we always meant to go
I see the eagles soar, and the wind blow through the willow,
I carve a tally in the base of a tree
And count the day to set me free

There’s nothing wrong with what we said
There’s nothing wrong with what we did
There’s nothing wrong with who we are
There’s nothing wrong with how we thought
There’s nothing wrong with what we believed
There’s nothing wrong with how we behaved

I believe you when you calm down and explain how the voices sound
I believe there is something else in the sky above or the underground

By the light of my window,
I return to where you are sat,
Hard day at work you said,
Is this now where we’re at?

Did we dream of an answer
Did we dream of a better life…
Can’t say I would blame you
Can’t say I didn’t try….

Take me with you, instead of the shame and the final dose
Take me with you, where the frost never kills the rose
And the final days
They were beautiful
And the final days
Were so beautiful
