lyrics

I know your voice, you know my song
Just hear the words, you can help me sing along
Like dreamer's who'd run from the keepers of time
We huddled close in this fight
Full of fire and wine
Full of fire and wine, you looked divine

We were young fools, wild, aching
Tired of all this waiting
Built to bring down these walls

We were brave, bold, knew we were better
I'm caught in this box full of letters
I see you like this is a dream

You shield your eyes and I cover your face
There's warmth in your hands and emotions to place
A lover to chase
Your beautiful memory I cannot erase
Your smile breaks the ice like a ship breaks the sea
Like knocking on your door, 'round a quarter to three
We'd both sing along
That same old song

We were young fools, wild, aching
Tired of all this waiting
Built to bring down these walls

We were brave, bold, knew we were better
I'm caught in this box full of letters
I see you like this is a dream

Mine is the melody
You are the memory
We wrote sweet poetry
Your words turning over

Poor, beat, hearts burning
Sore, late, lost and learning
Still I know your voice

I know your voice, you know my song
When you knew the words, you always used to sing along
Like dreamers who'd run from the keepers of time
We huddled close in this fight
Full of fire and wine
Full of fire and wine

Mine is the melody
You are the memory
We wrote sweet poetry
Your words turning over

On faster now we run
Into the setting sun
When we'd only just begun
How could this be over?

Poor, beat, hearts burning
Sore, late, lost and learning
Still I know your voice
