Do you remember when you said to me,
"Now I lay me down to dream
I pray to you, my soul to keep"
(I thought prayers were for the weak)
"And if I die before I wake,
This heart of mine is yours to take"
I fell for you (while I watched you sleep)

You're all dressed down in your bedclothes
Falling whichever way the wind blows
I hope it takes you home

Make believe you don't get colder when it snows
She says "I'll leave the light on,
If you promise you'll come home."
Oh, how I miss that city love,
This is too much to take
So if I sleep tonight,
I'll think of you
And hope I die,and hope I die before I wake.

Tonight I won't lie down
These sealed lips won't make a sound
I'll keep my fingers crossed
That the rain might stop
In hopes that I won't drown
We're just strangers sharing beds
With memories
We're talking heads
Our bodies fell apart and made an awful mess

Now you're falling out of your dress clothes
Into the arms of...
Oh, who knows.
If memory serves me well,
I miss you so.

Make believe you don't get colder when it snows
She says "I'll leave the light on,
If you promise you'll come home."
Oh, how I miss that city love,
This is too much to take
So if I sleep tonight,
I'll think of you
And hope I die,and hope i die before I wake.

We'll sit pretty on the city rooftops
We'll keep singing 'til the music stops
We'll lose our voices in the name of love
But sometimes love just isn't enough
I've got high hopes, and no, I won't grow old
I've got that style and Chicago soul
I've got matchstick feet, come and dance with me
We'll set fire to the streets
You look so pretty on the city rooftops
Please keep singing 'til the music stops
Your silhouette's so close to home
You know I need you now,
Don't go.
Ill leave the light on, if you promise
Ill leave the light on, if you promise
Ill leave the light on, if you promise
Ill leave the light on, if you promise
Ill leave the light on, if you promise
Ill leave the light on, if you promise.
