lyrics

Sally wanted the world
but hadn't a clue
how she would be heard
So one day she drove
herself to the cliffs
and sang of her love
then threw herself in
so no one forgot

But everyone has a name
and hers will be sold
again and again
as stories are told
And as time moves on
she'll wonder if darkness
ever becomes
something she can hold

David always fell short
at least so he thought
a job he could not
hold down for a fortnight
His bills piled up
right next to his pills
and one day he thought
“ man I've had my fill”

But everyone has a name
and his will be sold
again and again
as stories are told
And as time moves on
he'll wonder if darkness
ever becomes
something he can hold

No brave sacrifice
just loads of regret
and it's not that nice
when you can't forget
the warmth of his skin
the smell of her hair
and all you can wish
is “take me back there”

The magic is lost
when you disconnect
for you can't rewind
when you've hit eject
And as time moves on
you'll long for that friend
who told you the truth
who would not pretend

And I have a name
and it will be sold
again and again
as stories are told
And as time moves on
I'll wonder if darkness
ever becomes
something I can hold
