There was a banquet of believers when we walked into the room.
 December days of X-mas felt like days in June.
And there were morning light and sunrise chimes ecoed all around.

Back to where I came from. 
And you know I'm going back, going back to stay. 
To the alleys where pearls of passion came my way.

There's a promise in the twilight, it's so innocent and wild. 
Two hearts that break the silence, you can hear a distant cry. 
And there's emptiness and loneliness, it's more or less the same. 
Let's run between the raindrops, babe and catch the midnight train.
