lyrics

Let's walk along the railroad tracks
And talk about the lasting path
Until the train comes in our way
Shall we stay?

Tomorrow blaze a ghosting trail
Tell stories when we're rich and frail
Till finished day when sun ballets
Shall we stay

Soon we'll run an endless race
Today we'll wander into space
Don't take a step, just fall on back
Shall we stay?

Future, fade in masquerade
Past and now enjoy the fame
Of other plans and crowd-less hands
Wait for it, wait for it (they say)

Can you show me what is real?
Can you show me how to feel?
Can I stand up when I’m walking out?
When will pleasure become pain?
Will we hold that little gain?
Will I be worth all your time and doubt?

On Easter we'll both run away
And finally find our saving grace
With bags of tea till Jubilee
Stay with me

I'll hug you till my blood is dry
And love you till I cannot cry
The road we take is no mistake
Please stay with me

Can you show me what is real?
Can you show me how to feel?
Can I stand up when I’m walking out?
When will pleasure become pain?
Will we hold that little gain?
Will I be worth all your time and doubt?

Can you can you can you?
Save me from the world
And impending fate?
Will you guide me along
As pleasure blurs the pain?
The cocktails I kiss
Will I see Styx?
Will I see Styx?
Will I see Styx?

“It’s simply us!”
I declare aloud
“The best of friends
The one I can’t live without”
No mom and dad
There’s no need to discuss
It’s just simply us
Simply us

Can you show me what is real?
Can you show me how to feel?
Can I stand up when I’m walking out?

When will pleasure become pain?
Will we hold that little gain?
Will I be worth all your time and doubt?

(Show me)
Can you show me what is real?
(Show me)
Can you show me how to feel?
(My mind keeps walking out)
Can I stand up can I stand up again?
(I’ll wait)
When will lonely become fame?
(I’ll wait)
And why can’t we just have our names?
(Love me)
On the doors at each others place?
(Love me)

Can you show me what is real!
Can you show me how to feel!
Am I worth all you time!

Can you can you can you?
Save me from the world
And impending fate?
Will you guide me along
As pleasure blurs the pain?
The cocktails I kiss
Will I see Styx?
Will I see Styx?
Will I see Styx?

“It’s simply us!”
I declare aloud
“The best of friends
The one I can’t live without”
No mom and dad
There’s no need to discuss
It’s just simply us
Simply us
