lyrics

Amen

in the last days of the golden age
he put his pencil down
and he tried to figure out just when
he became the clown
and it’s funny how your will can break
from choices that you never make

amen, amen
every story has to end
amen, amen
I’ll never see that sunrise again

and the air was sharp on Baker Street
on the day he left the band
ahead were possibilities
and a heart half full of sand
and for all the dreaming that you have done
it could have happened to anyone

amen, amen
every story has to end
amen, amen
I’ll never see that sunrise again
amen

and if
{ah-oh etc. behind:}
I don’t feel so clever now
at least I know I found out how

{ah-oh etc. behind:} amen, amen
every story has an end
{mm-hmm behind:} amen, amen
I’ll see the sunrise again
{mm-hmm behind:} ame-e-e-en
