There's no easy answer
None to blame or forgive
Two cripples dancing
To the end we live
I'm not with you, not of you
Not with you, not of you

You are soft and young to me
I am the ghost who comes and goes
And I hope I'll catch you
In the throws of
One last look at the wonder
One last look at the wonder

Oh God, I love you
And all the past we once knew
Some other love becomes you
Whatever else we come to
I know we could be so happy, baby
If we wanted to be

You are soft and young to me
I am the ghost who comes and goes
I'm hoping that I'll catch you
In the throws
Of one last look at joy
That we've become

But there's no easy answer
None to blame or forgive
We were two cripples dancing
To the bitter end we live
I'm not with you but of you
I'm not with you but of you

Oh God, I loved you
And all the past we once knew
Some other love becomes you
Whatever else it comes to
I know we could be so happy, baby
If we wanted to be

We had a birthplace in common
We had separate beds and lives

I'll just sit here and glow
Break out the oldest pictures
And hand your ruined letters out to dry
We had a birthplace in common
And separate beds and lives
And lives and lives

I know that we could be so happy, baby
If we wanted to be
I know that we could be so happy, baby
Yeah oh
