there's a trial, there's a trip you take
down a lonely road to a lonely place
where everyone leaving goes.

there's a wait, there's a long long line
to get what you need & to keep what you find
when everyone leaving goes.

the dark don't hide you from the face of the moon.
you can't outrun what you can't undo
don't look back now, you know what you might see...

babe, i'd love you better if you only had eyes for me.
