Watching A Building On Fire
LYRICS...
Watching you as you fall
From so far away
Blue across the gold
At the edge of today

And someone is in the room
Standing next to me
We're side by side
In the dark

Watching A Building On Fire
A thousand miles away
Watching A Building On Fire
Sometimes you find out too late

All over this city
Lovers will be meeting
Cool summer breeze
Is moving through the trees

And someone is in the room
Sleeping next to me
Walk out in the quiet light
Glancing at the screen

Watching A Building On Fire
A thousand storeys high
Watching A Building On Fire
A million lifetimes wide

Look out from this window now
Over all the streets
Shadows far below us
Moving like a sea

Someone was in the room
Breathing close to me
I can never be certain
That you were ever here

Watching A Building On Fire
A thousand miles away
Watching A Building On Fire
Sometimes you find out too late

Watching A Building On Fire
A thousand miles away
Watching A Building On Fire
Sometimes you find out too late

Watching A Building On Fire
A thousand storeys high
Watching A Building On Fire
A million lifetimes wide

Watching A Building On Fire
Watching A Building On Fire
Watching A Building On Fire
Watching A Building On Fire
