in the grey before the dawn
your still sleeping like a stone
and the trains have kept me awake
they've been rolling by all night long
still i wouldn't want you awake
cause you've got about as much to say
as a street corner performer miming on a rainy day

you lie you're still your breathing
so i resign my melody
cause i'm tired by make believing
that in the morning i will leave

after all this time
it's been interesting to find
it's the strangest memories
that slip into my mind
so i watch them all float away
fade into the gray
waiting for the light to come in
wash them all away

my melody still is beating
but it's singing differently
and i'm tired by make believing
so in the morning i will leave

songs are rising from their hiding
light is in my eye
i feel blinded whats behind this rhythm can't be right

cause it's slow
in between
what i know and what i mean
and i feel fine

i know you, i know you, i know you
i don't know who knows who

no one
what if it's
no one
it could be
no one but you
