Down Another Notch

One by one you're all revealed
secrets from the quiet fields

Words are broken thoughts are lost
in the day we ought forgot

Meanings mixed up
mistaken for a lie

Sarcastic apologies
we all know how to cry

Memories stolen before they're replaced
everything we've done has gone to waste

Promises made and broken and kept
all that's left is me and here I wept

Stars are going out in the night
dropping one by one, leaving no light

Legends fail us and turn to dust
wishes and hopes are left to rust

Abandoned cities all over the place
belongings left in all of their haste

Alone and lost and confused as I watch
I know that you'll be here if I just turn the music down another notch
