Here in the shadows, it’s a dark day
Hollow promises left in the cold
So I chase it, oh I chase it
Because it’s soft and pleasant to hold

And it fades, fades away

Like lightning
The air crackles
The pulse quickens and
That’s the way I loved you

The way I always will
It fades away

Here in the gutters, it’s a cold day
It’s one of those, down-to-the-bones
And it’s tiring, oh so tiring
To know what it’s like to be alone

So it fades, fades away

Like thunder
The windows shake
The lights flicker and
That’s the way I loved you

The way I always will
It fades away
