And all the masks I carry on my face
For you, for another some calm and then some grace
But once within a long and broken night
A face like mine, bereft of dreams and white

This is a song, a song for a departure
(This is a song)
This is a song
This is a song, a song to take you homewards
(This is a song)
This is a song

Maybe this strangeness only ever was
To hide ourselves from some kind of happiness
But always the moment it just seems to stay
Tearing it off like so many calendar days

This is a song, a song for a departure
(This is a song)
This is a song
This is a song, a song to break your heart to
(This is a song)
This is a song

This is a song, a song for broken lovers
(This is a song)
This is a song
This is a song, a song to take you homewards
(This is a song)
This is a song
This is a song, a song to break your heart to
(This is a song)
This is a song
