lyrics

We got drunk and read graffiti from the walls of Pompeii
and toasted to the ruin waiting in the light of day
Intoxicated by the moment more than from the wine
knowing that all good things, they fall in time

I said...
Hold me like there will never be another night
There's no need to pretend that anything's all right
Hold me like the only word we know is goodbye
'Til the ashes fall from the sky

And when the clouds come, there'll be no time to save ourselves
So when the fire rains down I can only hope I've loved you well
If we're going down together at least it'll all be over fast
You know a love like this just burns to hot to last

I said...
Hold me like there will never be another night
There's no need to pretend that anything's all right
Hold me like the only word we know is goodbye
'Til the ashes fall from the sky

And in two thousand years will the evidence still be here?
Will our beating hearts be found layered underground?
Will people pass by with tears in their eyes
and know that this was real and say
yes, this is how it feels

Hold me like there will never be another night
There's no need to pretend that anything's all right
Hold me like the only word we know is goodbye
'Til the ashes fall from the sky
'Til ashes fall from the sky

Hold me... 'til ashes fall from the sky
There may never be another night
There may never be another night
