Lyrics

In the blue of the night
When the streetlamp's shallow light
Is pooling like champagne upon the road
When the engine hums
An unfamiliar song
That's when you know you're far from home

That's when I think if you
Ever think of me
And the way that we
Went wrong
That's when I think if you
Ever think of me
And the way that we
Got lost

Who am I to say
The words to slay the rain
The words that made you stay, too long

And what's left to console
The distance that unfolds
The distance that unfolds inside a song

That's when I think if you
Ever think of me
And the way that we
Went wrong
That's when I think if you
Ever think of me
And the way that we
Got lost

You fled the steeple like a sinner
You fled the fire like a saint
You fled the photos to the fringes of the frame
Where just the dusty edge remained

Now out upon the road
Among the gas and the glow
Among the gas and the glow you never know
Just what silence means
Is it beyond or in between
Is it beyond or in between the dust of dreams

That's when I think if you
Ever think of me
And the way that we
Went wrong
That's when I think if you
Ever think of me
And the way that we
Got lost
