We dared to ask for more
But that was long before
The nights began to burn
You would have thought we'd learned
You can't make promises all based upon tomorrow
Happiness, security, are words we only borrowed
For is this the answer to our prayers, is this what God has sent?
Please understand this isn't what we meant.

The future couldn't last,
We nailed it to the past
With every word a trap that no one can take
Back from all the architects who find their towers leaning
And every prayer we pray at night has somehow lost it's meaning
For is this the answer to our prayers, is this what God has sent?
Please understand this isn't what we meant.

A long time ago when the world was pretty
Standing right here in a different city.
They're not coming back anymore.
They're not coming back anymore...

Is this the answer to our prayers, is this what God has sent?
Please understand this isn't what we meant.
