lyrics

Hey now, Josephine, it's long been
Time for us to quit this scene,
And you know how it gets to be as days go by,
But when no hope is found,
Something brings the temperature of the air down,
And something sends you out the front door.

So now you're out in Battleship Park, an hour before dark,
Aware of something long thought lost in you
That's begging you to make a start,
With a black coat and a red sky,
A coffee cup and tired eyes,
On seeking out a new life that is brighter than the old.

Any part of you that you could ever throw away
Cannot belong to you today,
So come on throw it all away – you won't be sorry.
Gotta keep that place inside where your silence lies,
And build from there a new goodbye –
The kind that sounds like you're wondering,
“Why did I not say this before?”

When it feels like you been stood up
For the first time in twenty-seven years,
It's the unsteadiness you fear, but honey,
That's your ticket outta here.
Don't offer up an old response, just cos you know
It's more than once that you felt that way –
You might not ever feel the same again.

And meet me down in Battleship Park, an hour before dark,
So we can pool what we've got in our pockets
And try to buy a start,
With a radio and a freeway, and hot drinks on cold days,
On living in a new way that is brighter than the old.

Any part of you that you could ever leave behind
Cannot remain with you tonight,
So come on let your memories die – they never serve you,
Cos all you need is space around one brand new idea
To let it take you far from here, to let it prove you wrong.

You know I seen what it does to people
When they think that they're done leaving,
And I hope that there's more for us
Than sitting waiting to stop breathing,
Until we're long gone, and giving up on
What we might build upon if we opened up our eyes,
So open up your eyes, open up your eyes.

Hey now, Josephine, it's long been
Hard for us to live this dream,
But you know how it's gotta be from this day on.
When no snow will fall,
Something in the air resolves to change it all,
And something sends you out the front door.

Me and you, watching the hourglass sand run through...
I gotta be honest – I ain't got a promise I can make you
Beyond this: All I know is my heart won't let the future go,
My heart won't let the future go.
Won't let go, I won't, no I won't let go,
I won’t let go, I won’t let go.
