Never Let Me Go

from The Rain Becomes a River by Sci-Fi Romance

lyrics

Spent long, late nights making battle plans
For conquering the worlds we saw before us
Waiting for our time to come
Now I lose late nights remembering
Those conversations distant in my memory
We looked away and our time slipped by

I learned eventually
Wish I may and wish I might
It's not every dream
That's destined for daylight

We may never be
In movies or in magazines
But hey, hey that’s all right

We wove stories from the threads
Of everything that lay past the horizon
We knew the parts we'd play
But they were just tall tales we told ourselves
Turns out that the world don't turn that way
And somewhere our lines got lost

There must be some clue
Why it never came off right
I wish I knew
So much for perfect hindsight

We may never be
In movies or in magazines
But hey, hey that’s all right
(Never let me go)

The view, I know, looks different from
The visions that we had for the two of us
And the lives we'd live

But what no crystal ball could show
Was the stillness that I’d feel beside you
And how that's everything I need

So I thank the stars
As I lie awake at night
You're in my arms
When we're wrapped in morning light

We may never be
In movies or in magazines
But hey, hey that’s all right
(Never let me go)
(Never let me go)
