So what if I’m depressed?

Well you are too

So let’s go watch the sun fall from the sky

Sit down, wouldn’t bother wonderin' why

Tilt up those lips for just a moment

Pretend it’s okay for the dancers

Hold- don’t let them see it true

Just me and you

We’ll hide it in the moonlight

Wait 'til they’ve gone and said goodnight

Hush now; your insides are black and blue

Burnt by a flame we all once knew

Come on then, pass it around

Hush now; don’t make a sound

Now they’re up and awake

Put it out, for your own sake

Feel it around your throat?

Good; we all do now

Familiar like a sunfall…
