lyrics

i saw you at the end of the block
‘neath these hundred year old trees
at six to ten feet we stopped to talk
under cloudy skies and summer’s heavy heat

under a dark sky, under stars so bright
you getaway drove until street signs were gone
stopped on the roadside, turned off the headlights
stared at that deep black sky, then moved on

maybe i’ll see you again
in a decade, or the world’s end
maybe i’ll see you sometime

they built with stone to keep the hope in
ready for trouble, ready for a feast
you and i are good at beginning
we’ll stay if we want to, run if we need

glad i saw you again
in this new town, at the world’s end
i’m glad we have some time

the fires burn and glow into the night
secrets don’t sleep and they know how to find us
under a dark sky, under stars so bright
you and i are here and that’s enough
