[Chorus:]
I am walking 
Out in the rain 
And I am listening to the low moan 
Of the dial tone again 
And I am getting 
Nowhere with you 
And I can't let it go 
And I can't get through 

And the old woman 
Behind the pink curtains 
And the closed door 
On the first floor 
She is listening to the air shaft 
To see how long our swan song will last 

And both hands 
Now use both hands 
Oh no, don't close your eyes 
I am writing 
Graffiti all over your body 
I am drawing the story of 
How hard we tried 
How hard we tried 

And I am watching your chest 
Rise and fall 
Like the tides of my life 
And the rest of it all 
And your bones have been my bedframe 
And your flesh has been my pillow 
And I've been waiting for sleep 
To offer up the deep 
With both hands 
Oh, with both hands 

And in each other's shadow 
We've grown less and less tall 
And eventually our theories 
Didn't explain it all 
And now I'm writing our history 
Up on the bedroom wall 
And when we leave the landlord will come 
And paint over it all 

[Chorus]

And both hands 
Yes use both hands 
Oh no don't close your eyes 
I am writing 
Graffiti on your body 
I am drawing the story of 
How hard we tried 
How hard we tried 
How hard we tried
