lyrics

Out the window
Snow falls down
On the concrete
Ain't a soul around
Heat pipes creak
Wood floors make crackin' sounds
Are you still floatin'
Fainthearted in your ghost town
Are you still wandering lonesome
In your tailored gowns?

Or, have you got it right?
Does he hug & kiss & hold you tight?
Well, you'll get yours like I got mine
It comes like a thief in the night
Like a thief in the night

We studied old photographs
You said the eyes don't ever last
But that in fact they're the first to fade away
And then it all begins to get hazy
Well baby, if you saw me now
You'd say that boy with his crucifix's gone crazy
But I still drink my coffee black
And somedays I get to thinkin'
That I'm coming back
Coming back around

Out the window
Snow falls down
On the concrete
Ain't a soul around
Heat pipes creak
Wood floors make crackin' sounds
Are you still floatin'
Fainthearted in your ghost town
Are you still wandering lonesome
In your tailored gowns?

Or, have you got it right?
Does he hug & kiss & hold you tight?
Well, you'll get yours like I got mine
It comes like a thief in the night
Like a thief in the night
