well, the moon i know, in the town i live, is steady as she waits. it seems as though she yearns for me and calls me by my name. sometimes she says come to me, kiss me while it’s late. and other nights she’s just hanging with the stars.

and i’ve seen her waiting from all her mistakes and what if he never comes when you call?

and, “hey, it’s alright” she says. “once upon a time i lived a perfect night. hey, in another life she says, in a dream of mine from a thousand years ago.”

“don’t look back,” i heard a voice. in velvet i couldn’t see. the pictures then were black and white, and the details were in between. i heard about a woman once, who did everything ever asked of her. she died last week and her last words were, “it wasn’t worth it.”

and i’ve seen her patience through all her mistakes. and who’s gonna save you now?

and hey, it’s alright she says. once upon a time i lived a perfect night. hey, in another life she says, in a dream of mine from a thousand years ago.

way back when when we became friends, i was you, you were my defense. and quiet was the night. you showed me that bridge, and it brought you home. you told me about it and i never let it go, and i guess i might’ve been doing the same. anyhow, quiet was the night.




----------original post---------



Well, the moon I know and the town I live
Steady as she waits
Seems as though she yearns for me
Calls me by my name

Sometimes she says "Come home to me"
"Kiss me while it's late"
And other nights she's just hangin'
With the stars

And I've seen her waiting from all her mistakes and
What if he never comes when you call?

And ay-ee-ay, ay-ee-ay, "It's all right" she says
Once upon a time I lived the perfect life
Ay-ee-ay, ay-ee-ay, "In another life" she says
In a dream of mine from 1,000 years ago

"Don't look back," I heard her voice, and know that I couldn't see
The pictures then were black and white and the details were in between
I heard about a woman once who did everything ever asked of her
She died last week and her last words were, 'It wasn't worth it'

And I've seen her patience through all her mistakes and
Whoooo's gonna save you now?

Ay-ee-ay, ay-ee-ay, "It's all right" she says
Once upon a time I lived the perfect life
Ay-ee-ay, ay-ee-ay, "In another life" she says
In a dream of mine from 1,000 years ago

Ay-ee-ay, ay-ee-ay, "It's all right" she says
Once upon a time I lived the perfect life
Ay-ee-ay, ay-ee-ay, "In another life" she says
In a dream of mine from 1,000 years ago

Ay-ee-ay, ay-ee-ay, "It's all right" she says
Ay-ee-ay, ay-ee-ay, "In another life" she says

Way back when we became friends
I was you, you were my defense
And quiet was the night

Show me that bridge and it brought you home
You told me about it and I never let it go
And I guess I might've been doing the same, anyhow

Quiet was the night

I hear the chorus as:

Ay-ee-ay, ay-ee-ay, "It's all right" she says
Once upon a time I lived the perfect night
Ay-ee-ay, ay-ee-ay, "In another life" she says
In a dream of mine from 1,000 years ago


Edit: Changed life to night.

Absolutely agree. I signed in just to talk about this. I'd bet my left nut and my firstborn child that its "In another life"

I hear:
"It's all right", she says.
Once upon a time I lived a perfect night
"In another life," she says, "In a dream of mine from 1,000 years ago"

Weird, I didn't struggle at all with the chorus, but now I hear it, lol. Good job.

Oops, I said "perfect life" in mine. This one is correct.
