Lyrics

Sunlight fading fast, make it last 
Like a flame that flickers, then its passed 
Moonlight fades to dawn, carry on 
You never know what’s real until it’s gone

Love deals the currency of loss
Don’t ever forget what it costs

Hold on to me, carry me through 
Our story is the pain that we outgrew 
Yeah, you can’t call it love until you’ve lost 
If you love someone this is what it costs

This city cries softly tonight 
Like a million tear drops from a thousand eyes 
I’m drenched beneath the rainy Melbourne sky 
Wonder how it is I feel so dry inside

Love uses the pain to drill the holes 
That irrigate our dry and thirsty souls

Hold on to me, carry me through 
Our story is the pain that we outgrew 
Yeah, you can’t call it love until you’ve lost 
If you love someone this is what it costs

Sunlight fading fast, make it last
