lyrics

i prefer to be mysterious
but I slip up every time
i don’t know the first thing about you
but i’m telling you everything on my mind
to…

keep your gaze on me a little longer
‘cause we both know that we won’t last
beyond this song

your move as smooth as a boy hitting puberty
wide-eyed and eagerly you ask
the dj in the bar blasts our one-song soundtrack
still you’re harder to refuse than the rest
so…

keep your gaze on me a little longer
‘cause we both know that we won’t last
beyond this song

our goodbye is near
it’s as if i’m staring out from a departing train
as if through my open window from the platform you’re runnin on, you grab my hand
as if this song has lasted years and we suddenly discover
our ever-after will never be together

keep your gaze on me a little longer
‘cause we both know that we won’t last
beyond this song
