Future Islands - Before The Bridge

Album: "On The Water" (2011)

I will walk you home and I will leave you there
I'll take the books you stole
And leave the heart that bared - this soul

I hope you have what you need
(I hope the moon is listening)
I hope you have what you need
(I gave my soul, my body)

I hope you have what you need
(I hope the moon is listening)
I hope you have what you need
(I gave you soul and body)

And if things hadn't changed
I would have buried you deep in my arms
And if things had stayed the same
I would have carried you as far as the stars

Whatever has us know
I can't forget, somehow
For, to forget a love, is to regret
And, what is love, is regret
And, what isn't love is a test

And if things hadn't changed
I would have buried you deep in my arms
And if things had stayed the same
I would have carried you as far as the stars

Do you believe in love?
Do you believe in love?
Hold your tongue...
Hold your tongue...

Whatever has us now
I can't forget somehow
For, to forget a love, is to regret
