ONCE THESE TREES WERE SAPLINGS

THIS HOUSE WAS WOOD AND STEEL

THIS PARKING LOT WAS FOREST

THIS SHOPPING MALL, A FIELD

 

ONCE I WAS YOUNG AND BEAUTIFUL

THE YEARS THEY TAKE THEIR TOLL

STAY ON THIS PATH FOR AWHILE AND

IT WILL BECOME A ROAD

 

ALL THE BUILDINGS AND THE BRIDGES

EVERYWHERE YOU'VE RUN

GONNA TURN TO RUST,

TURN TO DUST

ALL THAT'S LEFT IS LOVE

 

THE BIRDS WERE STRUGGLING IN THE SKY

THE SUMMER WIND WAS BLOWING

WHEN WILL I GO THE FINAL MILE?

GOT NO WAY OF KNOWING

 

WHEN I FOUND MY FORMER FLAME

SHE LAY BENEATH THE WOODEN TOWER

THE STONE HAS TAKEN HER NAME

HER BED IS SNOW AND ARTIFICIAL FLOWERS

 

ALL THE BUILDINGS AND THE BRIDGES

EVERY ROAD YOU'VE RUN

GONNA TURN TO RUST,

TURN TO DUST

ALL THAT'S LEFT IS LOVE

 

EVERYTHING IN THE FUTURE

EVERYTHING TO COME

EVERYTHING YOU SAID TO HER

EVERYTHING YOU'VE DONE

 

ALL THE BUILDINGS AND THE BRIDGES

EVERYWHERE YOU'VE RUN

GONNA TURN TO RUST,

TURN TO DUST

ALL THAT'S LEFT IS LOVE
