lyrics

I wrote me a book
I hid the last page
I didn't even look
I think I locked it in a cage
Wrote a novel
'cause everybody likes to read a novel...

It started with a word,
and it started pretty well.
About a rare and fragile bird that I couldn't even spell
On the table
I think I left it on the table...


Oh hello,
Will you be mine?
I haven't felt this alive in a long time,
all the streets are warm today
I read the signs
I haven't been this in love in a long time
The sun is up, the sun will stay
All for the new day

I found the last page in the sky,
cold and sweet, like an apple
I found you and now the story has its proper end

Oh hello,
Will you be mine?
I haven't felt this alive in a long time,
all the streets are warm today
I read the signs
I haven't been this in love in a long time
The sun is up, the sun will stay
All for the new day

The very last breath of the hero of our tale
Would lead you only to guess
did he truly prevail
in the the sequel?
I guess I'll have to write a sequel...

My favorite part's when I die
in your arms like a movie.
It's tragic, but now the story has its proper end.

Oh hello,
Will you be mine?
I haven't felt this alive in a long time
All the streets are warm today
I read the signs
I haven't been this in love in a long time
The sun is up the sun will stay
