lyrics

Nervous grins and secret tells
Weathered hats and old hotels
You wear them well, wear them well
Don’t you

The room looks like a battleground
and the weather’s raging all to hell
but I will wait it out, wait it out
Waiting for you

And maybe we’re making it up
But darling no one can tell
I’ll wait for you forever
Waiting to let you down

And by the time they ask for us
We’ll move on to another town
Alone, together
Making it up

Running lights and singing songs
Playing records way too long
I can hear it now, hear it now
That wondrous sound

Stand back to back, and face the crowd
Telling stories about ourselves
I’m ready now, ready now
Ready for you

And maybe we’re making it up
But darling no one can tell
I’ll wait for you forever
Waiting to let you down

And by the time they ask for us
We’ll move on to another town
Alone, together
Making it up

I am ready to bury what we’re running from
I will carry what’s left to make of us

In the hazy glow of approaching dusk
When Time has done its work on us
You’ll wear it well, waiting it out
I’m waiting for you

And maybe we’re making it up
But darling no one can tell
I’ll wait for you forever
Waiting to let you down

And by the time they ask for us
We’ll move on to another town
Alone, together
Making it up
