Porcupine Tree – Love In The Past Tense Lyrics

One hundred rooftops stretch
Across a crowded skyline in relentless melt
The smog and cigarettes
Poisoning the well for those below alone

You beautiful young soul
I bend to you forever and I trust in you
I lose all self-control
Lay the nest with feathers
Wave goodbye to youth
(Love in the past tense)

Falling back to earth
We get what we deserve
Strength to split the sky
What is born will die
In time
Love in the past tense

We always end up here (We always end up here)
Where nothing feels the same and all our dreams capsize
We ran out of ideas (We ran out of ideas)
And hold each other’s promise for one final time
(Love in the past tense)

Falling back to earth
We get what we deserve
Strength to split the sky
What is born will die
In time
Love in the past tense

(Love in the past tense
Love in the past tense)
Love in the past tense
Love in the past tense
(Love)
