Lyrics:

My dear, we're no longer those pretty young things,
The glossy veneer has worn thin,
But we keep hanging our hats on those moments,
That are already gone.
Dear, we're no longer so proper and prim,
The timely excuse sound grim,
And we keep waiting around for those moments,
That are already gone.

And when you wake up, when you wake up
And you're calling out my name,
When you wake up, when you wake up
Do you feel the same?

Oh dear what were we thinking about?
My god what were we thinking?
And how could I forget you - when you're the best of my regrets
And you know you are…
Has it gone too far?

My dear, the decay of old age settles in
Getting hard to tell sinner from sin
No idea where we're going and no memory
Of where we were from
Dear, we're no more than old bones under skin
Propped up drinking our tonic and gin
And you keep rabbiting on about moments
That've been gone too long…

And when you wake up, when you wake up
And you're calling out my name,
When you wake up, when you wake up
Do you feel the same?

Oh dear what were we thinking about?
My god what were we thinking?
And how could I forget you - when you're the best of my regrets
And you know you are…
Has it gone too far?
