I woke up this morning
To find that we have outlived the myth of trust
You woke up this morning
To the fact we've lost the things
We took for granted between us
And I grew up in awe of the girl next door
And the boy that never cried

And I was dreaming of those Elizabethan girls
While you were working in the market
To earn ourselves

And when you found out what happened yesterday
While you were away in this land of Cain
We were upstairs in the bedroom
