This night is so big
This night has stars falling
Into my hands
And if I listen real close

I can hear some distant train
Crossing, crossing
(It makes me wonder)
Cast your shadow
Cast your shadow

Across my heart
Investigate me
I hope I've been yours
Right from the start

(It makes me wonder)
And can it ever be
I would know
Experience

The casualty
Of your love
All I can ever see
Is the need

Climb out of here
Find the way to some
Quiet place
Where you are

This night is so dark
This has silence
And very little fear
Tell me this welcome peace

Isn't dancing with the ghost
Of future tears
(It makes me wonder)
And can it ever be

I would know
Experience
The casualty
Of your love

All I can ever see
Is the need
Climb out of here
Find the way to some

Quiet place
Where you are
See how the road melts
Hear how the flowers fall

Feel how the smoke rolls
In front of my eyes
See how the trees bend
Hear how the heavens hush

Feel how the earth fades
In front of my eyes

And can it ever be
And can it ever be
And can it ever be
No
Please no
