I throw this to the wind
But what if I was right?
Well, did you trust your noble dreams
And gentle expectations to the mercy of the night?
The night will always win
The night has darkness on it's side
I throw this to the wind

I miss your stupid face
I miss your bad advice
I tried to clothe your bones with scratches,
Super 8s, exaggerated stories and old tunes
But never by the moon
But not the state I'm in
The night will always win

I throw this to the wind
But what if I was right?
Well, did you trust your noble dreams
And gentle expectations to the mercy of the night?
The night will always win
The night has darkness on it's side
I throw this to the wind

I miss your stupid face
I miss your bad advice
I tried to clothe your bones with scratches,
Super 8s, exaggerated stories and old tunes
But never by the moon
But not the state I'm in
The night will always win
