lyrics

Please
Forget me
I'm an hourglass running dry

If you follow me
I am only gonna dim your light

For you I'm just a lighthouse
In a sea of stars
When you're lost

And I will always be waiting by the station
To catch the first train out

Of sight, run
As fast as your feet can take you
Give your love
To a girl who would never think to break you
I'll bite my tongue
You'll whisper to her sweet 'I love you's
Take your time
Don't wait for me

Please
Forgive me
I'm a yellow fog overseas

What's it good for?
Just a sinister set of keys?

The words all emptied out into the streets
All our fears, all our lies
And I will always be waiting by the station
To catch the first train out

Of sight, run
As fast as your feet can take you
Give your love
To a girl who would never think to break you
I'll bite my tongue
You'll whisper to her sweet 'I love you's
Take your time
Don't wait for me
